About the Artist
Sarah graduated in 1980 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Arizona in Tucson.
She started her art career as a watercolorist, but now works primarily with acrylic on canvas.
Sarah enjoys painting the beauty of God's creation. Currently, she's attracted to light and how it creates a mood and carves out shapes in nature. Sarah paints landscapes predominantly but also botanicals and figures.
For many years, while Sarah homeschooled her children, she volunteered as a theatrical set designer. This offered her the opportunity to give back to her community while spending time learning and honing her craft.
Sarah appreciated the challenge of conceiving a concept and then watching it come to life on the stage. Now, she has returned to creating her own art from her own inspiration.
Sarah is proud to announce that six pieces from her Montana Collection hang in Sage Lodge, a luxury resort in Pray, Montana.
Sarah hosted 'The Art Show Presents' at the Edmonds Plaza Room with two other artists and a photographer. (April 2017)
Sarah has been accepted in juried art shows at Shack Art Center, Mount Lake Terrace, Edmonds Art Festival and Gallery Northwest. (2017-Present)
The sets of "Shrek, The Musical" were nominated via the 5th Avenue Theatre High School Drama Awards.
Sarah has assisted Driftwood Players and Ballyhoo Theatre with set designs.
Sarah works in her studio near Edmonds, Washington.
The following are some of the sets Sarah created. She is forever grateful for the hard-work and dedication of both Stephanie Elliott and Angie Douglas Butler who helped her create amazing sets. Art transported the audience into a new place and time during live musical theatre.
