Sarah Stone’s artworks merge ideas, disciplines and media, blending traditional oil painting with an iconic style and 3 dimensional, hand crafted materials.
Sarah applied her creative skills for many years as an art director, set decorator and prop maker in film and theater, collaborating with luminaries in the entertainment industry to produce the sets and props for projects including The Wonder Years, Freaks and Geeks and a Bunraku puppet theater project, Zen Shorts, performed at the Segerstrom Center.
Sarah’s colorful, contemporary and seemingly whimsical artworks repeat motifs of roots, branches and veins, as well as runes, masked figures and mythic animals, pulling threads from nature, dreams and ancestral consciousness to illustrate fundamental human connections.
Sarah has presented solo shows at Topanga Canyon Gallery, Altadena Library Gallery, and Hidden Los Angeles Gallery, and has exhibited around the country in Tangent Gallery, Detroit; San Louis Obispo Museum of Art; Zapow Gallery, Asheville; Sugar Mynt Gallery, FOLD Gallery, bG Gallery, and Fathom Gallery, and was recently featured in Art Muzeo Magazine.
She received her BFA in illustration and film animation from Philadelphia’s University of the Arts and, though she took post-graduate classes in painting at Rutgers, her painting techniques and themes have emerged and developed from her own travels and inquiries.
