I’m enjoying the recent paintings that Sarah has displayed on her portfolio website. The works are delicate and tend to utilize negative space to the fullest capacity. In many cases, a single, loosely painted flower is the focus of the paintings, backed by white space or panels of color. Peaceful and subdued, these painting works sit nicely beside Sarah’s textiles.

In our previous feature of Sarah’s work, we discussed the artist’s seasonal textile works. Her website gallery of fiber works is still divided seasonally, similar to seasons of a fashion house. Fitting, since Sarah has recently been branching out into more wearable artworks, her practice now including not only scarves but dresses, tops and tunics. Many of these items also feature a light, breezy floral pattern and seem quite light and airy in their construction.
