Sarah J Coleman

Recognised as an early pioneer of hand-drawn type and lettering as image, Sarah has spent her life creating words and pictures for an international client base, with around 400 book covers to her name (she’s stopped counting!) With solo exhibitions both side of the Atlantic, she has expanded into murals, installations, music, gallery shows, chocolate and pirate radio, with a bewildering collection of adventures along the way. Her first short documentary, ‘Stupid Enough’, on the nature of creativity in business, was premiered in Austria in the autumn of 2015.
