Sarah Stone grew up in a house full of books. Her favorites were mythologies, fairytales and gothic horror, which she illustrated, sometimes in the margins. After gaining her BFA from Philadelphia’s University of the Arts, Sarah followed her love of narrative art to Hollywood where she worked for many years creating descriptive imagery on a much larger scale as a set and prop designer in the film business.
Wanting to develop work that was more personal, Sarah returned to full time art making, drawing upon stories from her own Scandinavian and Slavic roots as well as traditional tales from many diverse cultures, to create new visual mythologies conjured from many layers of contemporary symbolic identities.
Sarah has exhibited her artworks in galleries and museums in California, North Carolina and Michigan. She has also presented solo shows of her artworks at Topanga Canyon Gallery, Still Point Gallery, ME, Altadena Library Gallery, and has been a featured artist with SoPas Gallery, Bookshow, Sugar Mynt Gallery, FOLD, Gallery 446, and Fathom Gallery.
Her studio is located in the Santa Fe Art Colony where she is happy to receive visitors by appointment.
