“My goal as an artist is to communicate through my work in a way that leaves the viewer wanting to know, ‘What fuels her life?’”
Expressing herself through fine art and creative endeavors has been a part of Sarah's life since childhood—leading her as an adult to first to pursue a BFA in fashion design followed by a brief career as a children’s dress designer and production manager. Yet, Sarah found her analytical side beckoning, so she earned an MBA and then focused her professional efforts on marketing communications for over 15 years. Working with several non-profit organizations in Boston revealed to Sarah how
she could share stories through visual art. Thus, she began in earnest her journey out of corporate storytelling and into art as a career.
Although Sarah now enjoys living in the Denver area, her South Texas roots and Czech heritage are still evident in the style of some of her work. In other pieces including fine art painting, decorative art and illustation art, Sarah’s looser painting style is influenced by her first love—watercolor painting, which she first developed as a teenager studying art in San Antonio. During the 17 years Sarah lived in Dallas, she also learned to work in underglazes on ceramics and to weld, both skills which continue to foster her creativity and art.
