She has extensively published her research. Her artwork has been exhibited in museums and galleries internationally.
Her graphic memoir, The Book of Sarah, was published in May and is an alternative bible to the one Sarah moved away from, along with the religious Jewish lifestyle she followed as a teenager.
‘An astounding work of insight and clarity… so eloquently expressed, especially the family’s long-standing tradition of stifling ambition, autonomy and independence – thereby thwarting so much potential – that it almost broke me.  It will resonate with so many, helping to show them that they’re not alone.’ Stephen Holland—Page 45
