About the Instructor
After an early career as a singer/songwriter Sarah eventually discovered the watercolor medium and knew that she had found her clearest creative voice. She has been painting with watercolors for 35 years and is recognized for strength of story and her ability capture the fleeting qualities of light and its influence on form. Her years as a singer/songwriter flow through her process in the melodious and lyrical qualities of her paintings.
Sarah is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society and recently showed with the North American Watercolor Association at the Columbian Watercolor tricentennial in South America. She collaborated with the Harlem based Elisa Monte dance company who choreographed an original dance based on her painting I’ll Fly Away. Sarah was a faculty member for the 2018 Plein Air Convention in Santa Fe in addition to being featured in the Elie Saab Paris Haute Couture runway catalog with her painting Flight.
From her Crows and Ravens series to her to Brandywine Valley landscapes to her 40 years of painting, paddling, and exploring the Adirondacks of upstate NY from her family’s 100-year-old off-the-grid cabin, she is most at home in the woods and on the water.
Sarah is much sought after as a workshop instructor having taught plein air classes in Tuscany for the last 5 years, many other workshops throughout the US and Canada, and 10 years of classes in her Delaware studio.
