Sarah was born and raised east of Toronto, Canada, on a beach on Lake Ontario. She became interested in art a young age, spending every available minute drawing, and developing her techniques. After high school, she spent a year in an interdisciplinary liberal arts program in Halifax, Nova Scotia, at the University of King’s College, studying Western literature and philosophy. Following this introspective year, she earned a BFA at Queen’s university in Kingston Ontario, graduating in 2012. She began to sell and exhibit her paintings in Toronto, learning about the business side of being an artist. Sarah completed her MFA in painting at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2014, and was awarded a year long fellowship residency at the Headlands Centre for the Arts in Sausalito, California. Sarah now works out of her studio in Healdsburg, California, and exhibits her work across the San Francisco Bay Area, and in New York and Toronto.
