Sasha's childhood was split between North Yorkshire (where she is originally from) and the Isle of Mull, Scotland. She studied at Central St. Martins (2012, Illustration) and then at Chelsea College of Art (BA Graphic Design in 2015). Sasha lived in Amsterdam for 4 years and moved back to London in 2022 where she now creates in her colourful art studio in Lambeth. 

 

Sasha sells original art, hand-painted ceramics, Giclée prints and bespoke designs. Sasha Compton is a one woman operation. All designs are hand-drawn or painted by Sasha in her London studio. Sasha has a love for hand-made creations which is reflected in her own work; embracing the skill of creativity and craft. She minimises waste in the production process by not mass-producing and instead making one off works or limited-editions. Sasha often re-uses packaging materials to be as sustainable as possible. She encourages you to shop less and buy better, and in doing so, protect the planet and traditional skills that go into creating hand made Art.

Sasha takes on private commissions and collaborations regularly, please get in touch if this is of interest.

"In today's world there is so much pressure to be perfect. My work is all about embracing the differences. I like to experiment with unpredictable creative methods; such as lino printing. ceramic glazes or watercolours. These materials seem to have a life of their own which I love. I embrace those imperfections that give an artwork it's own character, as if each piece has its own personality."
