Sadie Clayton is celebrated for her copper sculptures, having been featured in the Royal Academy of Arts, the V&A Museum and Tate Britain and regularly appearing on our screens in Sky Arts and Channel 4.

Sadie was chosen to be one of the young artists in the new Sky Arts format ‘Landmark’, aimed at bringing together artists from across the UK to create the next sculptural landmark, she was commissioned to create an art piece which is still free for the public to view in the iconic surroundings of the Lake District. Clayton has embarked on more projects within TV including the Channel 4 documentary, in collaboration with Dove, ‘Hair Power, Me and My Fro’.

With a Jamaican-born Grandmother, Sadie grew up in the UK in West Yorkshire to a black father and white British mother. Sadie navigated life trying to fit into two different cultures, but growing up she was encouraged to step out and express her uniqueness. Sadie’s story has got her to where she is today, and her vibrant, ambitious, infectious artistic energy is what continues to be her superpower.

Sadie self-produced and presented a successful new podcast called ‘Black people can’t… swim’, exploring stereotypes and myths around the Black and Afro-Caribbean community not being able to swim. The second series further explores other activities such as skiing, farming and flying – careers and hobbies not traditionally pursued by black and Afro-Caribbean communities.

2024 is a big year for Sadie as she embarks on motherhood, exploring and navigating a new time in her life and new creative opportunities to express herself. As a mixed race woman Sadie will need to navigate bringing a child into the world who may be ‘defined as othered’ due to their appearance, but as the world evolves Sadie sees herself as the face of representation for the future of the next bi-racial generation.
