"Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know."                                                                                              Groucho Marx

Sarah has shown her works in watercolor, acrylic, oil and mixed media in numerous local, national and international shows and exhibitions. She is a member of The Visual Arts Alliance, National Watercolor Society. Woodlands Art League, and an elite Signature member of Watercolor Art Society - Houston.

Artistic expression has always been a passion in Sarah's life. She is the product of generations of artists and lovers of the arts, so her talents were nurtured by her family and surroundings. She began instruction at about age 10, by bartering mother's-helper services with an artist friend of the family. Since, she has studied art in Michigan, Hawaii, Massachusetts, and Texas.

As a teen, art gallery and museum rat, artworks that grabbed Sarah's eye and spirit from a distance and continued to surprise and delight, the closer she came, were the most inspiring. That quality, and expressing the initial inspiration; the core of what seized her mind and heart about the subject or feeling always remain the primary focus of her works. with that firmly established she developers the concept, vision and chooses the medium. with those established, she is free to work predominately in an intuitive manner.

The subjects of Sarah's watercolor works are often foliage and floral subjects, using a layered wash technique to produce luminous colors, dynamic form, and depth.  Her mixed media works are both abstract and representational, yet not slavish to realism. She always strives to take the viewer on an adventure with her; an adventure of heart, mind and spirit.
