Sarah Butcher is an artist from Baltimore, Maryland. She earned a BA degree in visual art from the University of Notre Dame of Maryland.
She was the recipient of the 2014 Grow Grant. This grant allowed her to study Impressionism and decorative arts in Paris.
Sarah's work is influenced by her painting teacher, Gladys Goldstein.
She was honored to a part of the Retrospective and Alumnae Invitational Show at the Gormley Gallery in Baltimore in 2015.
Her work is exhibited in various venues throughout the year in Philadelphia and the Baltimore Metro area.
She has been an art educator for over 20 years and offers workshops in studio and digital art processes.
Her two dimensional art encompasses mixed media, collage, painting and photographic processes. Her recent digital work investigates the compositional possibilities of photographs captured with a smart phone.
"The ability to gather images quickly and spontaneously as well as the way in which I am able to create a body of work on a mobile device intrigues me. The use of AI in art creation makes mobile devices powerful art making tools. My studio is constantly open and I can explore artistic ideas throughout the day.
When someone looks at my art I'd like them to think about the color and the light that creates it. I explore the ephemeral relationship of color and how it is always in flux."
