Sarah Kennedy

 
Tucson, Arizona

Artist's Statement

The southwest desert is a place of sensual elements.  When I see a cowboy and horse, I smell the dust, the sage, the leather and the sweat. I can feel the sun baking the dry earth, hear the mesquites whispering, see the violet shadows cast by the surrounding mountains as the day fades. Here there are contrasts of hard and soft light, rigid rock walls and disappearing canyons, brilliant hues and quiet, subdued color. There is agelessness, mystery and beauty in this place of humans and horse working together. This is what I want to capture in my work.
 
Bio
Sarah Kennedy began creating artwork 50 years ago as a child captivated by the equine drawings of illustrator and children's author C.W. Anderson.  Even as a small child, she was seldom without paints, clay, pastels and even experimented with wood and linoleum etchings. Despite years of art classes high school through college she  instead earned a BS and MS in Food Technology and worked in product development at Pillsbury, Nestle and Stouffers Foods. After many years and a variety of other endeavors, Sarah returned to her first love- painting and horses.  She is grateful for the institutions and teachers who helped her with this process which include Tucson Art Academy, The Drawing Studio, Santa Theresa Tileworks and private and group study with many talented individuals.

Sarah lives in southern Arizona where her favorite pastime is riding the natural trails of the beautiful Sonoran desert with her horse Blue. She  is a member of Oil Painters of America; American Women Artists, Western Associates and is a board member of and 2015 National  Exhibit Show Chair for Women Artists of the West.  Sarah specializes in equine paintings, ranch and rodeo scenes  and commissioned portraits.
