The character and essence of city streets, alleys, and urban vignettes capture Sarah’s attention when she looks for subjects to paint. She finds rhythms in the shapes and spaces of the urban landscape.
Sarah is an urban landscape oil painter, who enjoys plein air painting. Being on location, responding and reacting to the light, color and atmosphere is a challenge and a joy. Recently, Sarah has started to use this plein air work and many photos taken while out painting, to create larger urban landscapes and abstract paintings in her home studio.
Art can bring joy and inspiration to our lives everyday. It is also a way for us to connect with each other and the world around us.

At age 13, Sarah fell in love with theater while building sets for a summer theater program. Years later, Sarah chose set design as a career because she loved creating the illusion of another world on the stage. That morphed into painting scenery for theater, opera and specialty events for 20+ years from Maine, Wisconsin, New Hampshire and finally Delaware.
Sarah now creates those worlds with oil paint on panels
