Sarah Parsons is a contemporary artist currently residing in Nashville, TN. Sarah studied both painting and photography at a small private college in Indiana and has been pursuing both mediums professionally since leaving school. She has gained recognition for her ability to paint with great sophistication and maturity beyond her years. Sarah’s paintings are vibrant with color, emanating an energy and movement that completely transforms the spaces and rooms where they hang. Through Sarah’s use of a palette knife and dry brush, she draws you in to a dream world of blurred lines and brilliant colors, hinting at a subject matter enough to engage the viewer yet leaving plenty of room for personal interpretation.
Sarah frequently paints during live worship sessions at her church or at home in her studio. An article written about Sarah went on to explain her process,
“She said that she starts by choosing a few colors, but actually decides little else beyond that. As the worship music and praise surround her, she begins to 'see' things on the blank canvas. She simply paints what she sees as the canvas reveals itself. It’s an artistic conversation, not an imposition. Sarah may have started with an idea, a tone or color scheme, but there isn’t a plan, per se. Her creative process is as much of a plan to receive as it is to give.”
Her work has been enjoyed and collected by many in the Chicago area. She is a welcome contributor to Nashville's emerging art community.
