Biography Dartmoor based artist Sarah Hoskins, was born in Kent and grew up in the South West of England. In 1996 she graduated from Wimbledon School of Art, then completed a Post Graduate diploma at the Cyprus College of Art in 2002. Since then she has exhibited widely throughout the UK, and internationally.
