ABOUT THE ARTIST
As a self-taught artist, educated in the field of Science and Architecture, I see my work as a form of self-realization that allows me to make sense of the, who, what and why of life.
My tools, primarily coloured pencil, allow me to convey the humbling fascination I have with the intricate details of the human form while exploring the beauty and mystery of the human spirit.
The artistic process has been a way of slowing down, examining the sacred, the beautiful and unspoken memory of a feeling. I am forced to examine light and darkness, hope and fear, joy and pain, comprehendible and unexplainable things.
At my easel I recognize that I am here to learn, to learn how to see. As my work pivots to embrace more mediums like embroidery thread, paint, and pastel, I find that ultimately it is the exploration of details that drive my work; it’s the culmination of the individual parts that draw me in; the relationship, connection, sincerity, and intensity of life.
Though my journey as an artist is still very much in its infancy, I have truly enjoyed sharing my work in Uxbridge, Scugog and Toronto. I look forward to sharing what comes next. I am incredibly thankful for the support from the community of Uxbridge, where my art journey truly began.
For 2023 Sarah will be welcoming guests to view her work at her home studio/gallery in east Uxbridge ON, along with guest artist Rhonda Short.
