Our featured artist for July is Sarah Francis. Sarah uses various techniques including papermaking, drawing, and encaustic art to create abstract sculptures. Visit her website at www.sarahfrancisart.com.

Inspirations

Sarah is inspired by the delicate patterns and textures that are often overlooked in the world. She creates layers of maps and textures that serve to tell a story of a place or an experience that she has lived.

There is great beauty among many things on this Earth. The grandeur of landscapes or creations is often recognized, but what I think goes unrecognized is the tiny and intricate detail of the world around us. Beauty can be found in many things, and I think that the hustle and bustle of daily life often draws away from us recognizing and seeing the beauty in nature.
