Welcome to Sarah Irving

I am a creative writer, artist and mini film maker (in progress) This website is my space for sharing experiements, discoveries and my passion for self-help and personal development. A rather strange sounding mix, but I promise you, it works.

Originally from the Wirral and now based in East Manchester, I am a Northerner born and bred. I am fascinated by the history, the people and the places in this part of the world. That being said, I love to travel and explore wherever my feet may land. I am happy walking for miles to discover the real heart of a place. From back streets to far away neighbourhoods. The stories of places are rarely in the centre or the places recommended in the guide books.

Simplicity brings more happiness than complexity

This quote has been in my email signature for as long as I can remember and is something I live and work by. It is so easy to get so caught up in the details of things that you miss out on the amazing world around you. My artwork and writing take this tone and I will share with you some of the insights I have from my discoveries I have from where I live, what I learn and where my life is taking me.
Fear not, it is lighter and far more fun than it sounds!
