SARAH EW LANE, Artist
I hope you enjoy my paintings, in which I pass along the color and brushstrokes that I feel. Most recently, my interests have turned to still life, reduction of brushstrokes, and, during the pandemic of 2020, portraiture. During COVID-19, I've been able to connect with so many figurative and portrait artsits, with whom I've engaged in great dialogue, learning and painting. While this time has been sad and strange and, in many cases, tragic, I've found art to be a way to stay connected, to celebrate the kindness in the world, and to try to make sense of the tragedy.
While art is a part of everything I do, it's not all I do. I spend my days with my family (husband and four kids, 2 dogs and 4 chickens--and if I had my way, I'd add pygmy goats), and we do life together. We get out into the beautiful spaces of the Pacific Northwest and walk, hike and run. We grow a garden (with many healing herbs). I invite you on this journey with me--to see what the seasons and this bountiful life brings us. If you have questions or would like to take a class or request a work of art, please contact me!
Don't become an artist. That's what everyone said. I tried really hard to listen. I gave it the old college try three times, all the while drawing in the margins of my calculus books and copying Gray's Anatomy, when I should have been studying military history. After getting a few degrees and exploring more than a few careers, I finally gave in to my calling and design to produce much art, some of it good. I am an artist.
