Sarah began to develop her artistic talent at an early age. She attended Holy Name Convent between 1979 and 1986, where her love of art was allowed to blossom under the expert tutelage of the late Pat Akien in forms 1-5 and Yvonne Spencer in 6th form. In 1987 she was accepted to Howard University’s Bachelor of Fine Arts program and graduated (Summa cum Laude) in 1991 with a degree in painting.
After taking time off to start a family, Sarah went back to teach art at her Alma Mater from 1994-1997. While there, she began painting again and was pleased to submit to several joint exhibitions between 1995 and 1999.
A two-woman show held in October 2000 at Horizon’s Art Gallery was her first major exhibition in Trinidad and Tobago. Utilizing mostly watercolours she explored such themes as Carnival and Hosay as well as celebrating the beauty of our natural environment within a semi-abstract vein.
Today she is privileged to incorporate both family and dear friends in a show that was seven years in the making “Diverse Synergies”
