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.
Hitchhiking and driving from East to West and back countless times, her love of exploring the countryside took her on many adventures across the American backroads.
She earned her Bachelor of Art degree from the University of New Orleans in 2011, then worked 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. She is enjoying working on a series of acrylic paintings that showcase solitary homesteads in the American rural landscape. And, more recently, she has been using her paint and brush to explore more of the beauty that surrounds her in her home state of Washington.
