Sarah’s simple artist's statement: “Henry Miller said ‘To paint is to love again, and to love is to live life to the fullest.’ So be it.”
Sarah's medium is watercolor usually combined with graphite. She prefers smooth surfaces and uses hot press paper, plate smooth illustration board and masonite with various surfaces. Lately, she often paints on clayboard with well-used toothbrushes as well as other tools to create texture. The clay surface lends itself to scrubbing, lifting and otherwise removing pigment and reapplying it to create a variety of surfaces. She sometimes describes her work as 'tropical western wildlife' because of her hot-colored Rocky Mountain area animals.
Sarah was born in Seattle, Washington, but raised in central Florida winters and Black Hills summers. She received her degree in fine art from the University of Florida at Gainesville, worked as a graphic designer in Columbia and Charleston, South Carolina, then moved on to New York City, where she spent seven years as an art director for an advertising agency. She now lives and paints in the northern Black Hills.
