Sarah is a visual storyteller creating magical and symbolic narratives about people, nature and elemental energies. She describes her creative process as feeling in the dark for fragments of sub-conscious artifacts. From these found-impressions, compositions emerge like seedlings seeking light, winding around themes of persistence, growth, and change, connecting past, present and future. An undercurrent of Sarah’s work is a fascination with mysticism and the human desire to understand the greater universe through a contemplation of, and surrender to, forces greater than ourselves.
She received her BFA in illustration from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, but a move to Los Angeles introduced her to film making and set design. Her career followed that path for a number of years, during which time she created props, murals and sets for popular movies and television shows. Designing environments for movies undoubtedly informed her paintings which depict imaginative worlds populated by characters of her own creation.
Sarah’s artworks have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the United States including Tangent Gallery, Krikawa Gallery, San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, Ontario Museum of Art and History, LA Municipal Art Gallery, LA Artcore, Memorial Union Gallery and South Bay Contemporary. Her work has been featured in many publications including LA Weekly, Art Muzeo Magazine, Pomona Valley Review, Man of the World, Diversions LA, and Naming Ceremony Magazine.
