Artist Biography

Sarah Sheffield started her professional life in social services but soon switched to arts and arts administration. Having grown up around design (an architect grandfather, an art teacher mother and industrial designer father), she develop an art portfolio and opened a free lance graphic arts business and taught art in public facilities. She was soon hired as a permanent arts instructor in the Raleigh (NC) Parks and Recreation system. Her career shifted into full time arts administration and she eventually became the Cultural Arts Supervisor for the Town of Cary (NC), where she designed and coordinated arts staff and programs, concerts and exhibits for two public arts centers. Following retirement from that position, she returned to oil painting. Following an invitation to participate in the Cameron Art Museum Art of Illumination lantern exhibit where she was challenged to bring together her experience in several mediums, she moved away from solely oil painting to more multimedia work in metal. 

Originally from Detroit, she has traveled throughout the US and internationally to western and eastern Europe. She is now happily settled in Wilmington, her husband’s hometown, and active in the arts community.

She has been fortunate to study in workshops with nationally recognized Impressionist artists and contemporary jewelers. She is a member of the Wilmington NC Art Association, Urban Sketchers of Wilmington NC, PaintNC (plein air/outdoor), American Impressionism Society, Oil Painters of America and Women Painters of the Southeast. 

Artist Statement

I create to discover— to fully observe, explore, and connect with the world. I enjoy the visual and tactile quality of the material I am working with and allow it to dictate some of the results.
