Originally from suburban Chicago, Sara Frantz earned her BS from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and a MFA in Painting from the University of Texas at Austin. Her drawings and paintings explore the false barriers that create more imagined than real distances between two points of view. Scenes of hope and want, but also powerlessness, depicted in flat color and faux digital paint marks. Represented by the David Shelton Gallery in Houston and Muriel Guepin Gallery in New York, her work has been included in internationally recognized art fairs, national solo and group exhibitions. In addition, she has attended various artist residencies including Cow House Studios in Ireland, Vermont Studio Center, and NES Residency in Iceland. Frantz currently splits her time between Los Angeles and San Luis Obispo. For more about her work or upcoming shows, visit her website at www.sarajfrantz.com.
