Sara Pope

United Kingdom


Born in Stoke-On-Trent, Sara Pope left school to study a degree in mathematics. However, she soon realised that she couldn’t ignore her creative side, and after completing her degree, began her career working in magazines as designer and art director, working for companies such as Hachette Filipache and Natmags.

Sara has always been interested in vintage shoes and started customising and selling vintage shoes while living in Spain. Organising champagne/shoe parties, gaining press in The Independent. Fashion designer Robert Cary Williams invited her to design a collection of shoes for his London Fashion week show – press: ID magazine. Sara followed this by studying a one year footwear Diploma at the London College of Fashion to learn the technical aspects of shoemaking. She has since worked as a shoe designer for many high end brands, including Paul Smith, Lacoste.

Alongside her commercial work, Sara has spent time developing her art. Working in oils and acrylic, she makes use of bold, attractive colours with high shine gloss. Taking much inspiration from her commercial experience; beauty, consumerism and the media.

Sara Pope is best known for her seductive paintings and limited edition prints of big, bold and beautiful Celebrity Lips. They pack a thought-provoking pop art punch. Beneath their glamorous gloss there is a hint of disintegration, raising questions about the ideals of beauty and the transience of celebrity culture.

Sara Pope’s work is rapidly gaining attention and she currently exhibits with several galleries. Sara has also had an original portrait of Pope Francis accepted into the Vatican Collection.
