Sarah Sedwick is a prolific painter of still lifes in a style she called “Loose Realism.” Expressive brushwork, brilliant color, and dynamic compositions are her goals in both painting and teaching.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Sarah earned a BFA in Illustration from The Maryland Institute, College of Art in 2001.

Based in Oregon, she has been teaching workshops on alla prima still life and portrait around the country since 2013. She is the author of the book Dynamic Still Life for Artists, published in 2022.

Sarah’s teaching philosophy is simple: the more you paint, the more you improve – so removing the blocks that keep us from the canvas is key. Loosen up, let go of perfectionism, and watch the results unfold!
