“The reason I was created was to create. My world consists of making beautiful art that is inspired by my travels, organic formations and reflectiveness. The beauty in abstract art is that the artist is able to use their imagination and create something completely original while at the same time abstract art is also captivating for the viewer as they are able to use their imagination to interpret the painting. My goal is to make viewing my work an enjoyable process for both parties.” - Sarah Todd
Sarah DuPree-Todd was born in Tyler, Texas on December 18th, 1987. Her interest in art first presented itself during her childhood and was encouraged by her parents. While taking art lessons as a child she found that drawing and mixing colors felt natural to her.
In 2010 she graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts Degree. After graduation Sarah taught art at a private elementary school in east Texas for three years.
