Sara began her professional design and artist career as a teacher and a private art instructor in her home. She worked at the Nelson Art Gallery, and was also a Art Teacher at a private school. When Sara's students visited her home for private art lessons, many would comment on how much they loved her gardens, and if she would help them design and create their home gardens. After having so much fun dreaming of and implementing special garden oasis's for friends and students... it clicked: This was the most rewarding and wonderful career on many levels. The chance to get to work with people on creating a retreat. The opportunity to be outside with nature. The ability to create Garden Vignettes in "real life", was more exciting than creating on a canvas.
Sara lives in the Midwest and loves having all the seasons. She lives with her longtime partner Danny and their 2 dogs Oz and Dusty. They also have a Lake Home and enjoy spending weekends on the lake, on their boat, exploring nature.
Sara's has two sons:
Garrett, a designer for a prominent design firm in New York City, doing both residential and interior design in New York.
Evan, a veterinarian at a clinic in Conejo California, who works with domestic pets and specializes in Exotic Animals.
All and all... Sara's family enjoys all aspects of design and nature together.
