grew up in rural Missouri in the heart of the Midwest. Artwork
was her calling from a very young age. Sarah remembers receiving
her first blue ribbon at the age of five from her kindergarten
art teacher, Mrs. Sue Mudd. She knew from that moment she wanted
to follow her dreams of becoming a professional artist.
Much has occurred in the years between kindergarten and now.
Sarah went on to excel in the arts through high school and college.
She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1995 from Columbia
College in Columbia, Missouri and then promptly went to
work as art director and public relations specialist for the
USDA. After seven years with the USDA, Sarah took two years
of leave to move to Lafayette, Louisiana for her husband to
take an administrative residency with a hospital there.
During those two years, her family of four became a family of
five with her husband Neal and their three daughters Miranda,
Elizabeth (Lizzie) and newest arrival Clara Scott. Aside from
a growing family, Sarahs artwork began to grow as well.
Sarahs work began to reflect more of her own humor and
wit and the works were and continue to be very well received.
In 2004 Sarah and her family made the decision to move back
to their hometown of Monroe City, Missouri.
This was always the goal, says Sarah, weve
always appreciated the slower pace and graceful lifestyle of
a small town. Family was the main draw to move back home. I
feel Im at my best on a lazy Saturday, gazing at my overstuffed
basset hound basking in the sun, with the mystic sound of a
train whistle in the distance conjuring up memories from my
childhood sleeping with the window open on a warm Summer evening.
These are the things that awaken my senses and allow my creativity
