Artist / PAINTER
Sarah Winkler is a British-born, Colorado based painter and collage artist. Winkler studied Art and Earth Science at William Paterson University and combines both subjects in her landscape and environmental based artwork. Her love of nature and wilderness began at an early age living abroad in Malawi, Africa with her family. It wasn’t until recent documentation of dimishing coral reefs, the floating islands of plastic trash in our oceans and living among the massive wildfires out West that threaten her home and studio each summer, was she fully aware of the massive physical stressors that Earth is dealing with today. Her first environmental show was at Thoreau Center for Sustainability in San Francisco where Winkler recreated in relief paintings the cycle of a diminishing coral reef habitat. She is currently working towards her second environmental exhibition of work “Smoke Signals” scheduled for April 2020 in recognition and commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day.
Winkler been exhibiting nationally since 2004; her work was showcased at the LA Art Fair and Art Aspen in 2018 coinciding with a major solo show "Luminous Mountainous" in Denver at K Contemporary. Her work is placed in many prominent private, corporate and public collections including: Hilton, West Palm Beach, FL, Cosmopolitan Hotel of Las Vegas, NV, One Empire Pass, Park City, UT, Chevron, San Ramon, CA, The Phoenician, Scottsdale, AZ. Her work has been honored with reviews and features in Westword, Scientific American, Alpine Modern, CREATE! Magazine and New American Paintings.
