Sara Ann Rutherford
Hello, I’m Sara Ann Rutherford and I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and rural Western Pennsylvania. I currently live in Bedstuy, Brooklyn with my partner. My interest in creating began at an early age, and after high school, I studied painting independently, honing my style. I like to describe my painting process as stream of consciousness, with each painting often being completed in one intense session.
In 2018, my partner and I visited St. Louis for my grandfather’s 90th birthday. At that time, I had not painted in several years. I found some of my old work in my grandparent’s basement and something sparked in me. I felt compelled to start creating again. As I finished new paintings, I shared them on social media, and was met with loving support and inquiries to purchase my work. Since then, I have sold original paintings and commissioned pieces for clients all over North America. My work has been featured in the inaugural issue of Dumbo Living Magazine and the second issue of Gallery M International Art Magazine. Currently, I have a solo exhibition at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn and have work displayed in The Bean in Manhattan.
