First Friday Artist Image

Sara Sha is a local artist from Santa Cruz. Sara Sha's work is characterized by bold intuitive movements, bright colors, and the balance of positive and negative space. Sara's intent when creating a composition is minimalism. Her abstract art process involves layers of paint, spray paint and pastels. She adds splatter, drops and drips and applies oil stick for texture. Sara is attracted to vibrant contrast and complementary color relationships. You can see reoccurring color palettes in her work. Sara's art is a reflection of her feelings, allowing her to release happiness, sadness, and joy! Sara uses art supplies made in the U.S.A. and Europe.

Sara has 4 on going series available for display.  The Pathways Series: This collection encapsulates movement and texture. These paintings are large, vibrant statement paintings.  Abstract Compositions: These paintings are intuitive forms of vibrant and bold color and texture; using acrylic paint, spray paint and oil sticks. Feeling Teal Series:  These teal abstracts are inspired by the translucence of water and the feeling of calm that is felt. Abstract Nude Series: This collection celebrates women embracing self love. Beautiful colors and compositions that evoke serenity. These compositions include layers of paint with a simple line figure drawing. You can see more of my art and process on my instagram as well. @
