Hello! My name is Sarah and I am a painter and mixed media artist. I am inspired by history, technology, dreams and color. I considered majoring in math in college until I eventually followed the path of creativity through art.
Lately I have been creating artwork as a way to broaden my horizons , uplift my spirit and act as a reminder that there is always something greater at play than what is immediately evident.
I am also interested in how technology can help us elevate our spirits and souls and reconnect with the world around us.
I started a series of geometric abstract paintings in 2014. I pulled visual imagery from our modern world- the digital age. Computers were ubiquitous. Pixels and code-like shapes began to appear in my paintings. My geometric abstract series is meant to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye and it is also meant to chronicle the digital age.
