Sarah is a contemporary impressionistic artist, working in oil on canvas, watercolor on paper, and charcoal on wood. Sarah draws from themes within her environment. Nature’s vastness and open spaces and mountains inspire her brush, while she celebrates nature’s minute details in charcoal dust. She is inspired by the natural world around her and energized by the relationships and 
connections innate to life. 
 Sarah lives happily in South Carolina with her partner Matt, her four children, and two dogs. She spends her free time exploring the wild landscapes of the Carolinas, studying the treasures her children collect on their adventures, and telling stories through pictures and words.

I believe art is a powerful voice, that visual metaphors and symbols communicate meaning and can incite change. I am moved by art that demands participation—that is, art that seeks to pull its audience into the ideas and elements of the art itself, while simultaneously pushing the viewer  into creating a better story for themselves and the world in which they live. I want my art to have a life of its own. I want for my creativity to be a catalyst within others. My goal is to explore profound questions and ideas, to be present in and filled by this amazing earth, to live fully within my environment as a mother, lover and artist, and to respond to this mind-blowing miracle of life by creating art that speaks.
