Having recently relocated from London to Melbourne, Sarah Beetson is a dynamic and exciting young illustrator whose work ‘reflects herself in its energy and innovation. Among her current and frequent inspirations and obsessions are retro, trash and gay culture, vintage clothing, John Waters movies, Angela Carter, JT Leroy, The White Stripes and The Dresden Dolls, 1980s Pepsi logos, candy and fairgrounds. Her favourite place in the world is Coney Island, New York’. [see also Ben Frost]
