ARTIST BIOBACK TO GALLERY
Sarah is an artist and designer based in New York City. Her artistic focus is monotypes, one-of-a- kind works created by painting directly onto a plate and running the plate through a printing press. Sarah is drawn to this style of printmaking because it always includes an element of surprise. Monotypes can also not be reproduced and are therefore different from other printmaking processes like intaglio or lithography.
Sarah likes to utilize the unique and unexpected textures of both natural and man-made objects such as vegetable wrappers, bubble wrap, leaves or dried flowers in her work. Her inspiration stems from things she sees in her everyday life in New York City, memories of her travels and her childhood growing up near the ocean in Massachusetts. Through her art, Sarah incorporates her keen sense of color, design and the Yin and Yang of calm and bustling energy creating abstract, modern designs inspired by nature.
Sarah obtained both her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Studio and Bachelor’s degree in Textiles, Fashion Design and Merchandising from The University of Rhode Island. Over the past decade, she has continued her printmaking education at the National Academy of Design and New York School of the Arts in New York City. Her prints have been featured in numerous shows including The Other Art Fair, The National Academy of Design, NYSA, IPCNY and High Point Market. Sarah works full- time as a product developer for a luxury fashion house. Her collection of artwork, fabric, pillows and other decorative textiles are available at Artxtiles.com
