Biography : Sarah McMenemy has established her reputation with her images of the urban scene. Her early student work has proved very successful in a wide variety of media. Sarah has been commissioned by some of the leading magazines. An early breakthrough came with a commission from Nippon Design, for a brochure for Toyota. Her work has been used over a wide range of products, from food packaging to clothing. Her biggest project, in terms of scale, was that for London Underground, for which she designed a series of giant enamel panels as the centrepiece for the refurbishment of Shadwell station. These were based on the area around the Underground station. In collaboration with Stephen Doyle of Doyle Partners in New York, Sarah has produced illustrations for the Hudson River Festival's posters, brochures and tickets.
