THIS PAINTING LIFE
Local Manly author and painter, I share my stories through novels and visual art. My first novel, West Block, came out in 1983 and was reissued in 2020. My latest, As the Lonely Fly, was published in 2017. Information on my publishing history and my artwork can be seen on www.saradowse.com.au.”
“Since resigning from the Australian public service in 1977 I’ve been teaching, writing reviews, poetry and commentary on a wide range of topics, contributing to anthologies and editing a couple of my own. Towards the beginning of the new millennium I began creating artwork with Adobe Photoshop and then started using traditional media or a combination of both. By now I’m a confirmed word-and-picture person, a condition that’s given me joy but at times feeling I’m torn between the two.
