My artwork integrates four elements – color, movement, texture and design – to create individually unique prints that evoke emotional and spiritual responses. The monotypes are abstract, non-representational pieces produced with multiple layers of acrylic paint that is patterned through movement and gesture.

The choice of contrasting and complementary colors is a key element in my approach that, with the use of multiple print layers, allows diverse colors to mix and meld. The application of the paint is accomplished quickly with movement and gesture that imparts textural and design features to the print to achieve an expressive result.

Sarah recently relocated from Boston to southern NH where she opened an art studio, currently concentrating on monotypes using the gel printmaking process. Her approach to printing uses movements and gestures as she applies vivid colors to the gel plate and builds layers of color and textures that resonate with each other. Her prints are spontaneous expressions exhibiting emotions and spirit interconnected in a harmonious abstract world. Sarah, a native of Maryland, was educated at Kenyon College receiving a B.A. degree (1996, major in Studio Art). Her senior project used liquid silver emulsion applied by hand, a process that informs her gel printmaking process. She received a M.A degree (2014) from Lesley University in Expressive Therapies. Her art skills, developed over the years, were an essential element in the suite of modalities used in Expressive Therapies, as part of the M.A. program.
