About the Artist:
Sarah Swisher has loved art all her life and has been painting and drawing since a very early age. After high school Sarah decided that art was something she wanted to pursue professionally. So Sarah studied at The Art Insitute of Chicago and earned her B.F.A in 1998. Since then Sarah has been in Indiana working and painting. Sarah loves botanical forms, mythology and surface design and all of these things play a big part in her art. Sarah makes everything from cameos and pyasnky eggs, to needle lace and watercolor paintings. Lately Sarah has been thinking about new ways of drawing. How to use line and color in a new way, so Sarah’s latest work involves lace making and knit images.
Artist Personal Statement:
“The art I make is sometimes ironic, silly or dramatic; it always shows a dedication to beauty and quality. I work to make art that speaks for itself and sweeps the viewer up either in a joke, a fairy tale or myth, a dream or the beauty of nature.”
