Growing up, Sarah always felt like an artist and seized any opportunity to create something or tell a story. Her favourite median of art was drawing, and as a child she was always on the hunt for scrap paper so she could scribble out the exciting content of her mind.

As an adult, Sarah continued to pursue art as a hobby, focusing mainly on large scale charcoal and pencil work. In spring of 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic and having recently been made redundant, she created the comic 'Oyin and Kojo,' showcasing humorous single panel cartoons of a black-British couple's every day life. Two months later, the cartoon editor of The New Yorker magazine discovered her work and asked her to become a contributor. It was from then on that she became a cartoonist for The New Yorker magazine, and later became a full time artist, creating comic, editorial cartoons and illustrations, and delivering artist workshops.
