  • Biography

    Sara Gillies lives in Milton where she works from an onsite workshop. Sara, her husband and dog live in a bus which gives them the freedom to travel around the South Island. Her training has been self- taught, with her only qualification, school certificate in art.
    Sara has a “Kiwiana” style approach to her work with each piece evolving as she works. Sometimes she knows in her head where she wants to go but it can depend on the materials she has on hand, which of course makes each piece unique. Sara can make anything, from small animals to wall art, outdoor sculpture and Singer sewing machine tractors.

    I believe you learn every day in life and that also inspires me for my work
    My art is recycling steel into sculptural pieces that you can have in your garden or sometimes in your home
    Revamping old garage tools into animals, making sculptural pieces that may have memories of grandad’s old tools.
    I’m saddened seeing all the waste that goes into landfill and like to change recycled steel into loved sculpture.
