Julie: Tell us a little bit about your artistic background/education.

Sarah Sparkes: I have a BA and MA in Fine Art from Kingston University and Chelsea College of Art and Design respectively. I also have a diploma in Field Archaeology and the Pre-history of Southern England. Research is important to my own practice and often informs my work – I was a research Fellow at School of Advanced Study, University of London from 2009 – 2012. My research centred on The Harry Price Library of Magical Literature and I ran the visual arts and creative research project GHost from UOL with Ricarda Vidal during this period.
