    Sarah Parkes

    Based in Fish Creek Victoria, Sarah Parkes has been practicing under Smalltown, a multi-faceted art and design practice, for over 15 years. Exclusively working with knots and rope, she has completed large scale interior installations and bespoke product design for a diverse range of commercial and private clients around Australia and overseas. Previously her work has been inspired by response to space however a move to the country has seen a shift in focus and influences. Now residing and working on a 40 acre farm, Sarah is intent on pushing her practice further with a renewed sense of wonder and possibility.
