About Sarah and her art:
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Fine Art.
I began watercolor painting in earnest in the late 70’s and have shown my work in exhibits, galleries, and shows throughout the U.S.
I have won awards throughout the country and my work is owned and shown in museums and over 50 corporations, hospitals, and public buildings, as well as private collections.
When I look over my paintings I can see the overall themes of nature and color.
I try to incorporate what I have learned along my life and painting journey into my current work.
The most important element to me is the use of color – particularly in how color itself, rather than shading or composition, affect mood and the viewer’s response.
I have used the same or variations on a compositional theme repeatedly, using different colors and color combinations to achieve different moods and responses to my work.
I am interested in nature as it appears in a “natural” environment, rather than one where plants and land formations are manipulated or designed by people.
To this end, I have concentrated on wild areas, which people often overlook, such as country roadsides – spaces where the plants are not planted or managed.
The natural variety and selection is infinitely more interesting and dynamic than anything organized by a person.
In the last years I have also developed paintings of a more whimsical nature, including animals, the sky, and the ocean depths.
