Sarah is a plein air painter of Carolina’s lush countryside, waterways, skies and animals as well as the arid high desert and the red rock west. Realism is not her goal, rather she strives for being-in-the-moment and facing the challenge of painting by reducing lanscapes to simple color planes keyed together on the surface. She has benefited from a lifetime of analyzing the art techniques of masters, living and dead, especially Edgar Payne, John Sargent and Joaquin Sorolla. She studied with Bob Rohm, Camille Przewodek, Scott Burdick and Susan Lyon and exhibits at Germanton Gallery, Germanton, NC, Tanglewood Gallery, Clemmons, NC, and Ambleside Gallery, Greensboro, NC. She is a member of the Pastel Society of North Carolina as well as Triad Outdoor Painters Society. Her list of national juried and one person shows as well as corporate collections may be found on her website.
