Sarah Martinez was born and raised in northwest Connecticut, studied art and philosophy at Université Concordia in Montréal, honed her craft in Brooklyn, NY, and then returned home to the Litchfield Hills. Here she works as a painter creating both abstract acrylic works as well as watercolor and ink illustrations for image licensing and archival prints. In her abstract work, Sarah uses primarily acrylic paint and palette knifes laying thick bursts of color in moments of serenity and storm. These paintings are clearly intuitive, allowing an atmosphere to emerge through playful eruptions of color and markings. Her watercolor and ink work focuses on the natural world, these paintings are most often representational in form yet surreal and whimsical in the use of color.
Sarah works from her home studio in Falls Village, CT where she lives with her husband and two young sons. Sarah’s original artwork is represented by The White Gallery in Lakeville, CT. Her watercolor and ink work can be found online through her shop Snoogs & Wilde Art as well through various retail collaborations including Papyrus Paper Company and Urban Outfitters.
A portion of all sales in this exhibit benefit the David M. Hunt Library.
