About the Artist:
Sarah Stone is a North American contemporary artist best known for her colorful interpretations of people and nature. Her work is inspired by folklore, outsider art, and the urban wildlife she encounters in her adopted city, Los Angeles. Her visual vocabulary is an amalgam of pop-culture influences, ancestral memories, and dreams.
Largely self-taught in painting, she studied film animation at Philadelphia’s University of the Arts before relocating to LA in 1981. There she discovered the Venice studios of Roger Corman where she worked as a prop maker, animator, and set muralist. This began a lengthy career designing for film and theater productions, laying the foundation for her current multi-disciplinary art practice.
Sarah paints with acrylics on wood and mural fabric, also employing found objects and various mixed media in her work.
She has exhibited in galleries across the US, including Ghost Gallery, Seattle; La Luz de Jesus Gallery, LA; Sylvia White Gallery, Agoura; Gabba Gallery, LA; the Ontario Museum of History and Art; San Luis Obispo Museum of Art; The Autry Museum; and Lancaster MOAH/Cedar.
She lives and works in a San Fernando Valley canyon where the cycles of nature provide daily inspiration.
