Professional Biography

Sarah has over 20 years working in industry, developing professional and creative skills that she utilises in the educational arena. Having graduated from The Royal College of Art in 1996, with an MA in Interior Design & Architecture, she has worked for both large and small practices across sectors such as retail, leisure & workplace.

Sarah has taught at the School of Fashion and Design, teaching on the Interior Design BA since summer 2012 and on the integrated Foundation Course since 2015.

As part of Regent's' Design faculty, Sarah’s approach is to encourage the appreciation of design philosophy and how this can be woven into developing designed spaces that tell stories and create journeys – uniting narrative and pragmatism that occurs within the design process.
