Originally from Michigan, Sarah was classically trained in painting at the School of The Art Institute of Chicago. There, she was able to focus on creating her unique style while preparing to enter the harsh real world of trying to make it as an artist. Funny enough, while isolated from fishing while being in a city, Sarah began to paint the fish that she was dearly missing. This was her first step of a career in fly fishing art. Knowing that she could combine her two great loves, she signed up for the Fly Fishing Shows and decided to really buckle down to try to make this happen for herself. Now living in San Francisco California Sarah has immersed herself further in her fly fishing and artistic practice. From Striped Bass, to Lahontan Cutthroat, Sarah continues to explore the incredible variety of landscapes and fish the state of California offers! With her landscape paintings, Sarah often paints outside to help absorb the color and essence of a place. Allowing herself to liberally use color as she sees and feels them. While with her fish, Sarah uses some reference photos but primarily lets her imagination run to create fish with distinct personalities and patterns. Her current works consist of vibrant large scale acrylic paintings with heavy textural mark-making.
