Sarah Faragher was born and raised on the coast of Maine, studying art history and painting at Colby College and the University of Maine. She now lives and works as a professional painter in mid-coast Maine.
Sarah has attended residencies at Weir Farm National Historic Site and Acadia National Park, and on Great Spruce Head Island. Her work is featured in “Drawing New Audiences, Expanding Interpretive Possibilities: Artist-in-Residence Programs of the National Park Service (US Dept of the Interior 2009). She was selected the 2011 Portland Museum of Art Biennial artist, and is included in the book “Art of Acadia” by David and Carl Little (Down East Books 2016).
“My paintings are memoirs of my experiences with nature. Through painting I participate in the landscape, recognize transcendent moments in nature, honor the integrity of natural forms, and describe where my heart lives. I often feel as if the places I paint have commissioned me to tell their autobiographies, at the same time that I tell my own.”Sarah Faragher
