Sarah is daughter of Utopian artist Mary Morton Kemarre. Along with her mother and sisters, Lucky, Audrey, Ruby and Valerie Morton, Sarah was part of the batik workshops in the 1980’s at Utopia. Sarah’s work is featured in the ‘Robert Holmes á Court’ exhibition and collection which has toured extensively within Australia and abroad.

Sarah began painting in the summer of 1988-9 as part of the CAAMA project with the Utopia women’s paintings: ‘The First works on Canvas, A Summer Project’. She has continued to paint with acrylics on canvas.

Painting is a part of life for Sarah, which she enjoys doing when not travelling for her education or participating in cultural business. She attends Bachelor College which has seen her travel to Darwin, Tenant Creek and Alice Springs.
