Painting is a visual repartee, a sensorial dance, an experience.
I love colour and the richness of wonder.
The spontaneous dash, the serendipitous wash mingle with texture, scratches, and passages.
The journey unfolds...
Originally from Montreal, Quebec, Sara moved to the beautiful west coast of Canada in 1991 to complete her PhD in developmental psychology at Simon Fraser University. After several years of research, she decided to dedicate her full attention to her then young family and to art-making.
Sara enjoys the versatility of acrylics and paints large and loose, using opaque passages and transparent washes, accenting or masking chaotic lines. She holds a special space for the circular form which to her represents a vessel, an embrace, a moment. One of her passions is cold wax and oil which combines the butteriness of wax and the luscious quality of oil to create textures for scraping, scratching and over-laying large sections with a calming passage. Sara also gets much of her inspiration through her many travels, to Bermuda, Newfoundland, and of late Europe.
