Sarah Sedwick is a prolific painter of still lifes inspired by color combinations and perceptual effects. All are painted from life. 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, and internationally, beginning in 2022! Her 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!
