My name is Sarah and I live in Rotorua. I have busy family life and work part time as an ECE Teacher.
My work primarily began on canvas, painting natured inspired pieces with a playful, gentle and whimsical flair. However as my business grew, I switched to working with different mediums that would be easier to produce for online sale.
I use to hand paint my mugs, but with a new member in the Sarah McAlpine Art household, sublimating mugs were not only less time consumimg to make, but also a popular choice for my customers. My signature Oh For Fox Sake! range began as an entry to a Spoonflower Design Challenge, where I was required to design a fabric based around the theme "nocturnal animals". I immediately chose to focus on foxes, remembering them prowling the streets from my days in London.
I had a lightbulb moment remembering the slogan "oh for fox sake", and without further ado my famous mug range was born.
