On The Verge submission - echowoods
Sarah was raised on a farm in Virginia. It was during this time she lived with ultimate freedom, simplicity and imagination. The barefoot years.
These qualities are reflected in each of her creative endeavors.
After a number of years on the farm, Sarah moved to Boston, Massachusetts, where she began to develop her talent as an artist. She attended Northeastern University, where she studied art history, architecture and visual arts. Sarah’s first artistic love was woodworking. So much so, her kitchen table was also her table saw. We will leave the details of this up to your imagination.
In 1991, Sarah’s spirit became restless and with two bags and a Super 8 V.I.P. card, she moved to Northern California. The West breathed new life into her creative process. Abrupt landscapes, wide expanses and rich culture, cast its spell. Sarah became involved in the Bay Area arts community, and took a position as Director of a Cooperative Gallery. During this time, she expanded her artistic medium from woodworking to welded steel, with a concentration on kinetic sculpture and architectural commissioned work.
With a never ending curiosity, Sarah, once again, went exploring, and found herself living in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She became the Director of a Gallery and Sculpture Garden, and began her exploration of two-dimensional work.
In 2006, Sarah moved to Western North Carolina. Since this time, she has applied her artistic experience toward a new body of work; acrylic and wax painting. The spirit and tranquility of the mountains continues to inspire and infuse her works.
