Painting is something Sarah has enjoyed for the majority of her life. In 2007, she graduated college from The University of Mississippi where she attained a BFA in painting. Sarah moved directly to Mobile after school where she began to establish herself as a working artist. She briefly taught art lessons before deciding to devote all of her studio time to her own work as a full time painter. Currently, she am living in Mobile and working everyday in her home studio. Sarah and her husband, Robert have a daughter, Lelia, who is an ever-evolving influence on my art and a son, Sonny.

Sarah enjoys working conceptually, and finds there are more undiscovered possibilities when there is a genuine reason for what one sets out to create. She is continuing to find ways to use painting as a vehicle to explain and work through other parts of her life. Building a body of work that communicates a particular idea is especially gratifying. Each series she develops is a focused response to a personal experience or dilemma.

As an abstract expressionist painter, the raw, impulsive brush stroke is an essential element in her compositions. There are no preliminary sketches, just gestural, reactive markings. A finished painting is composed of layers of texture and color that have been repeatedly eliminated and rebuilt. Her paintings are an illustration of her restless enthusiasm to make the most of every moment of each day.
