Sarah Jarrett Joins The App Whisperer As A New Columnist

Share

We’re delighted to welcome Sarah Jarrett as a new Columnist to theappwhisperer.com. Sarah completed her degree and postgraduate studies at Harrow School of Art & Brighton University in 1992 specializing in Photography. She was singled out in her final year for special bursary prizes from both Kodak and Agfa. After graduating Sarah taught Art, Textiles & Photography in Brighton and continued to exhibit her work in London, Brighton, Cambridge and Norfolk.

In 1998 she began to freelance full time and began to experiment with painting onto her own large color photographic prints with oils and sewing onto the surface with a sewing machine in an attempt to develop a unique way of working with photography. It drew immediate attention from magazines and publishers and secured her first print and publishing deals. Sarah now works with digital media using both the iPhone and iPad. The main focus in her images today is still in making photographic images look like paintings and in capturing dreamlike, ethereal beauty. To have a unique voice in her work is still very important to Sarah.

Sarah has exhibited , licensed and produced commercial artwork for companies in Europe and the USA and was selected as one of the winners in the Sotheby’s International Young Artists 2001 for a series of experimental painted photographic designs.  The main outlets for her work have been in fine art cards, gift wrap, calendars, posters, limited and open edition prints, book covers and food packaging design for supermarkets.

We recently interviewed Sarah for our A Day In The Life series, if you missed that, you can read it here.

As a columnist for The App Whisperer Sarah will be looking at the Art of Mobile Photography and investigating the diverse and exciting meeting points between photography, painting, graphic design and digital manipulation happening within iPhoneography.

This will have a wide remit but will take the form of interviews with artists about their working techniques, looking at approaches to a particular theme by different artists, showcase some unusual collaborations between Sarah and other artists and offer insight into apps and their creative uses. Sarah herself explains, ‘I am really passionate about this whole area, I have my ear to the ground and guarantee to uncover some really inspiring ideas. So watch this space!’ Sarah’s new bi-monthly column will be called ‘The New Renaissance’ and we cannot wait to see what she creates.

We recently welcomed Richard Gray, Misho Baranovic, Dan Marcolina, Keith Tharp, David Hayes, Teri Lou Dantzler, Richard Koci Hernandez, Rudy Vogel, Kevin Kuster, Laura Peischl, Dilshad Corleone, Mel Harrison, Star Rush, Catherine Restivo, JQ Gaines, Cindy Patrick, Roger Guetta and Janine Graf as Columnists to theappwhisperer and we will have a few more announcements to make very soon.

We are growing at a phenomenal rate and trying to include as much unique content and variety from the mobile photography world as our readers can possibly digest, you really don’t need to go anywhere else!

Please join us in welcoming Sarah to theappwhisperer family, welcome Sarah…
