Break them out for your next formal get-together—or just to look cool reading the paper in your local coffee shop. Please check my other paintings for "Secret's of the Banker's Suit" - the two could be a set. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mood. Space. Narrative. Sara Gardner explores how texture, colour, and an individual object can be brought together to create an evocative tableau. Taking ordinary, everyday objects as her subjects – an office chair, a carousel horse, a bicycle – Gardner imbues these things with a sense of place: these are objects that are meant to be occupied with a body, but they are presented here, empty. Her work resonates with psychological energy, suggesting the longing for a moment just missed, or the anxiety of something unknown about to occur. Her bold paintings can be found in private collections throughout North America.

Sara was born in the small town of Castlegar, BC, Canada. She came late to art, after a varied career in technology in the gambling, penitentiary and banking industries. Throughout her early career, Sara worked on software development projects as a Project Manager. She lived in Las Vegas for a year, where she observed those with extravagant lifestyles and those who went from all to nothing. She visited several US prisons and walked the halls of many correctional facilities. She also discovered the measured bureaucratic environment of a large international bank. After getting married and having children, her life changed, as it does. She found herself giving her time volunteering at her kids' school and wanting for something more for herself. This is when she discovered that she had a hidden talent, quite by chance. Now, as a self-taught artist, Sara has found a great satisfaction in expressing her creativity. With her husband, children and little Aussie Shepherd, she rarely runs out of inspiration. She lives in beautiful West Vancouver and paints full-time. Sara's current work focuses on movement and colour. As a runner, she has found a way to transfer her energy to the canvas, with lots of brushstrokes (or sponge marks, palette knife marks, etc), and mixing of paint, then highlighting and toning up or down. There is usually an obvious focal point in her most current series of art works. Today Sara Gardner’s work can be found in many private collections throughout North America and she has also exhibited in Europe. saragardnerart.com
