Sarah was raised on a farm in Virginia.  It was during this time she lived with ultimate freedom, simplicity and imagination.  The barefoot years.  These qualities are reflected in each of her creative endeavors.  After a number of years on the farm, Sarah moved to Boston, Massachusetts, where she began to develop her talent as an artist.  She attended Northeastern University, where she studied Art History, Architecture and Visual Arts.

In 2006, Sarah moved to Western North Carolina.  Since this time, she has applied her artistic experience toward a unique body of work; acrylic & beeswax painting.  With this collection, Sarah worked as an illustrator, for Hallmark Greeting Cards, for over a decade.  She was nominated for two prestigious Louie Awards, in connection, with the Greeting Card Association.  Her original paintings are widely collected, by many, including former Governor of North Carolina, Bev Perdue.  Recently, Sarah was asked to create a collection to honor the US visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama XIV.  The collection was inspired by the teachings of Cognitively-Based Compassion Meditation Training.

The spirit and tranquility of the mountains continues to inspire and infuse her works.  Sarah’s original work is represented by a number of galleries in and around Asheville, NC.
