Sarah is a primarily self taught artist, though she has taken workshops and classes since she was ten years old and spent weekends at The Museum of Fine Arts taking classes. Her first serious experiments with watercolors were with Angelina Wood with whom she took classes for many years.
Inspired by patterns in nature and movement she likes to capture the essence of a subject more then a literal interpretation. Her work is more expressive and reactive then realistic. Her style changed dramatically due to an eye disease that caused double vision. Having had eleven eye operations, she often painted when recuperating, unable to do much else. She started painting “close-up” views of plants around her garden, and changed her painting style to adapt to her changing vision. Some of her best work was done when she couldn’t see well!
Previously a resident artist at the Holliston Mill, Sarah now has a home studio in Hopedale Mass, where she paints full time and offers private and semi-private lessons. She also teach watercolors at the Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary in Natick. She is a member of the Franklin Art Association, Needham Art Association, and The Wellesley Society of Artists.
