In 1996, after working in the medical field for over 20 years, Sarah went back to school at the University of Southern Maine and graduated in 2001 with a BFA in Painting. Since then she has been pursuing art as a second career on an every day basis. Sarah makes Artist Books, having been inspired by several classes with Rebecca Goodale at USM, and paints in oil, watercolor and most recently casein tempera. She shows her work at the Centre Street Arts Gallery in Bath, Maine. Book making, using images and text, gives her an opportunity to create an autobiographical account of her observations and experiences. She considers her work of books and paintings as personal statements about the beauty and uniqueness of Maine’s lands, state forests, wilderness areas, and shorelines. She lives in Woolwich, Maine.
