Thank you for visiting my little shop. I’m Sara, the founder of ForrSa. I know that we are all spending more time at home at the moment (thanks to COVID) [and] I don’t know about you, but staring at my walls all day every day has inspired me to add a little more colour with prints and artwork. That is how this little venture was born.
I create original abstract art and colourful digital prints for new homeowner/renters to express their creativity and make their house/flat feel like home.
I’ve always felt like art held me at arms length. It felt as though it was for someone else, I could look from afar, but that was all.
So, when I set up ForrSsa, it was really important that my original art was affordable and accessible for everyone.
I’m inspired by all sorts. It’s difficult to choose but if I had to I’d have to say that colour, geometric shapes, texture and nature. In my painting I like to play with the relationship between the harsh lines of geometry and the freedom of fluid brush strokes. Or not a brush which is very often the case.
My design and painting process is instinctive, with my digital designs I like to create and live with the designs for a few weeks before I make any tweaks. My painting process is much faster, I try to finish a series over a couple of days and from there decide which ones I love. Sometimes it's all of them, sometimes it can be one or every now and again I will scrap the whole lot. They don’t go to waste though, I use them for my hand written thank you notes.
All of my prints are printed on 100% recycled paper. Everything I use to pack your prints is 100% recycled, recyclable or reusable. Even the ‘cellophane’ bags are bio-degradable and compostable.
My original paintings are on acid free paper, recycled where possible!
Although I my best to make sure the colours shown online are accurate, please note that actual colours may vary.
