Sarah Hall is a distinguished stained glass artist. She studied Architectural Glass at Sheridan College in Canada, and at Swansea in Wales. Following her studies, she was assistant to Lawrence Lee, ARCA in Penshurst, Kent. Her final year of glass study was in Jerusalem learning gold leaf techniques.

Sarah established her own studio in Toronto, Canada in 1980. Her work comprises contemporary art glass for architectural settings. Over the past forty years she has created hundreds of large scale artworks for public, private, and institutional clients. The common threads have been expressive forms and a painterly use of colour, so that each piece achieves luminous harmony with the architecture.

Through her work, Sarah has gained numerous awards and international recognition for her creativity and uncompromising artistry, plus her innovations in environmental technology. Her contributions to the field were nationally recognised in 2019 with Sarah Hall appointed a Member of the Order of Canada.
