Schooled first in Colorado, then at the University of Iowa, where Sarah earned first her BFA in Intaglio Printmaking in 1976, her MA in printmaking in 1978, then her MFA in painting in 1980, Sarah is a talented designer and skilled in a range of techniques beyond those usually apparent in her paintings. Over a period of 20 years, she has taught as guest artist and mentor in many public schools and colleges in Iowa.
A …colorist with a lively sense of design, Sarah produces abstracts depicting a decorative record of emotional journeys sometimes sunny, sometimes turbulent almost always dynamic. These works consistently appeal to both young and mature collectors.<br>Her honors and commissions include: Louis Comfort Tiffany Grant nominee finalist; Visiting Artist Residency for the Iowa Arts Council; Kirkwood Hotel Mural Commission; and the Jerome Foundation Invitational Grant. Sarah's works hang in over 23 permanent collections.
