Artist Biography

 

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 currently is in a Masters of Teaching program at Central Washington University and will earn her certificate to teach Art in Washington State in December 2021.

She has been using her paint and brush to explore more of the beauty that surrounds her in her home state of Washington. She loves to tell a story and her folk-art inspired paintings rely heavily on symbols, color, and allegory.
