Sara is currently working on her body of work "Intimacy", a year-long exploration into the blocks around, pathways to, and practice of intimacy within one’s personal, familial, and communal life. Coming together as a collection of hyperreal graphite drawings, the images created will be both figurative and symbolic, depending on the element of intimacy being highlighted.

Sara is a working artist, musician, and designer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Inspired by the pursuit of emotional and spiritual intelligence, she utilizes her work as an explorative tool into the inner and outer landscapes of the human experience. She has found that this practice allows her to not only understand herself better, but to access deeper compassion, empathy, and the ability to engage with others from a place of greater integrity. This endeavor is ongoing, by nature.

Sara studied Photography at CSU Long Beach before receiving her BFA with a Dual Emphasis in Painting & Drawing and Photography from San Francisco State University in 2013. She attended the Artist in Residence program at Elsewhere Studios in Paonia, Colorado in the fall of 2014, and recently completed a certificate program in Advanced Realism in Portrait Drawing through the Dzimirsky Realism Art Master Atelier (D.R.A.M.A.) in Warmsen, Germany at the beginning of 2019.
