Sarah Creason

American Expressionist

“Art is long – Life is short" 

Working primarily in oils, I create works of art in the Impressionistic style.  I handle the pigment loosely, applying subtle, free stokes of paint using a limited palette (five colors).  Inspired by the hypnotic paintings of the American Impressionists, I am on constant search to capture limited effects of light and color in landscapes, domestic scenes and figures. 

A childhood fascination with light and color has never left me.  Truthfully, I have always loved the play of sunlight and shadow.  A field trip to the ChicagoMuseum of Art introduced me early on to the best of the best.  This inspired me to study fine art at the college level for two years and take workshops with local, national and international artists.  This and miles and miles of bad canvas is how I learned to paint.  Exhibitions include several solo shows and with other artists at local galleries and venues.  Received awards in judged and juried competitions.   Professional memberships include Hoosier Salon, Indiana Plein Air Painters, Midwest Museum of Art, Lakeland Art Association, Ft. Wayne Artist Guild, Noble County Artists, and WhitleyCountyArt Guild.  

Workshops are held each month atFishtales Studio.  In the workshops, I take each student at his or her own level of artistic development and help to increase the quality of artistic expression.  Unlike many instructors, I do not use workshop time for a group demonstration.  However, I demonstrate, individually, solutions and technique when a student encounters a problem.

I am fortunate to have my husband, Cliff, my biggest cheerleader, and a large family who continues to support me in my efforts.   Art is a reflection of life, my life with Jesus Christ.
