SUN VALLEY, IDAHO
Trained in 19th-century oil painting technique, Sarah Bird creates classical still lifes using natural objects arranged in intimate, contemplative altars. She views still life as a poetic genre, a more self-determined form of landscape painting. Born in Massachusetts, she studied at Brown University and spent four years honing her craft at Grand Central Atelier, New York. Bird now lives and works near Sun Valley, Idaho, where inspiration from the natural world surrounds. Her work is shown and collected throughout the United States.
