About the Artist
Sarah currently lives and paints in Dallas and is known for her sensitive touch with watercolors, especially her portraits. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from Houghton College and also studied art and portraiture in Italy. In addition to receiving national and regional recognition for her work in competitive art shows such as Texas and Neighbors Regional Exhibition and Society of Watercolor Artist’s International Exhibition, Sarah has travelled extensively, translating what she sees into wet color or pen-and-ink sketches. Sarah is frequently sought out as a demo-artist and juror for art associations and exhibitions in the DFW area. She loves to take the train into the city and watch people or go “exploring” with her sketchbook.
“Sometimes you like the work of your students. Occasionally, you deeply respect what they can do. And on very rare occasions, you actually envy what they can achieve. I have been one to envy Sarah’s work in portrait watercolor for some time.”
