Sarah Filmer spent many years as a veterinary surgeon before giving in to the creative drive, and gaining her BA (Hons) Fine Art from Southampton Solent University, where she is now an associate lecturer on the fine art team. 

A gentle revolutionary, working with death, knitting, the human-animal relationship, and feminist perspectives, Sarah works individually and collaboratively with video, photography, drawing, and yarn-based crafts. Her work has been shown and screened locally, nationally and internationally, with recent commissions for Mottisfont Abbey gardens, National Trust, and Lux13 Critical Forum.

Sarah co-founded unitllstudios, an artists’ collective in Southampton, in 2010, and ran it until the end of 2014, when she moved out of the studios to pursue new projects, including becoming involved in medical humanities, and development of a proposal to become artist in residence at a vet school.
