Sarah Painter graduated from the art program at Florida State University with an emphasis in figurative painting, most of her work resides in the public realm as murals. Having painted throughout the broader southeast, her style is constantly evolving as she creates site specific work in social consideration of the setting and community. Also addressing a socially conscious agenda, her studio practice falls somewhere in between abstract realism and contemporary surrealism, touching on more personal themes of feminism and identity as a woman. Process is a fundamental aspect of Painter’s artwork, where the means of making the artwork are equally as important as the finished piece itself. Sarah seeks to use her curatorial experience to promote community based art projects. Based in her hometown of Tallahassee, Painter lives and works alongside her boyfriend and fellow artist Cosby Hayes.
