Artist Statement:
“MOVING. STILL. I find quiet peace in the beauty, power, impulse and majesty of nature, and in my work I hope to pass on that connection. I am only walking this way a short while and my wish is to share the texture, the emotion, the visceral experience that I was given during my time on the planet.
I categorize my work as modern impressionism, rich in color, movement and energy. My great loves and influences are Tom Thomson and The Canadian Group of Seven and Vincent Van Gogh . After 25+ years as a creative director for advertising agencies in Orlando, Scottsdale, Boston and Buffalo, I restarted painting again in 2014. In 2009, I worked with Academy Award winner Gerda Weissmann Klein, illustrating her book, “One Raspberry.” I was accepted as an exhibiting member of the Buffalo Society of Artists in 2015 and won their Gold medal in 2017 and again in 2021. I served on the BSA Board from 2017 – 2019. 
My works have been in several galleries, juried and solo exhibitions and are in private corporate and personal collections in the US and Japan.”

Photography can showcase beauty in ordinary things. After studying photography at Mckinley high school, Sara continued to fine-tune her craft at the University at Buffalo and for years afterwards in New York City. She moved back to Buffalo and splits her time now between Undergrounds Coffee House & Roastery, which she is part owner, and Photography.

Sara’s quest to uncover joy through photography has taken her on many adventures and given her the opportunity to connect with people she may never have crossed paths with.Her journey has become more than just creating a final product, but a celebration of experiences for herself and others that may have been unknown otherwise. Sara’s creative, yet comfortable approach allows for the capture of truly vulnerable, real, and esteemed moments and objects. Her portraits of people and places convey empathy for the living, but also breathe life into the untouched
