Sara Brogdon was born in 1971 in Nebraska and raised in Augusta, Georgia. She spent her teenage summers in the North Georgia mountains, where she became fascinated with the landscapes, houses and people that were scattered throughout.
She earned her Bachelor of Art degree from the University of New Orleans in 2011, then worked in New Orleans as an assistant gallery manager at the Canary Art Gallery for a year. She received her MFA in Painting from the San Francisco Academy of Art University in the Fall of 2018.
In May of 2022, she earned her Masters in Teaching from Cental Washington University and currently holds a position at The Seattle French School as the Art Specialist teaching visual art to grades K-5th.
She also shares an art studio with fellow artist Jennifer Oak (joakart.com) in Snohomish, Washington. Her paintings rely heavily on symbols, color, and allegory and are inspired by nature, animals, and the people around her.
