Sarah has been creating art her entire life, choosing to make art her profession while a freshman at Bowdoin College in Maine. During her subsequent ten years in Northern Colorado, she has participated yearly in at least one local exhibition,. She has also written columns for the Fort Collins Scene Magazine, taught at Front Range Community College, curated at Blas Bleu Theater, and worked in Denver galleries. Her influences have been Giorgio Morandi, minimalist Gego (Gertrude Goldsmith), and recently Otto Zitko. Vija Celmins’ “Fields of Stars” and her similar works from a meditative place also speak to Sarah. Her wide spectrum of experiences is reflected by the changes which have occurred in her artistic work as well.

Installation At FCMoCA:
The piece Sarah is creating for the exhibition is directed at our desire for shelter, and focuses on a cradle-like motif. Sarah talks about the relationship between the viewer and the piece as a space where one feels as if they are in a tent, perhaps as those made from pillows, or blankets as a child. The object is constructed to fit the space, and taken apart after the show closes. The act of construction and deconstruction was and is an important meditative experience for her. The result is her piece entitled Snow Cave.
