Sarah Burns is an observation-based painter working in the European tradition. For nearly two decades, she has been painting timeless subjects that include Figures, Still-life, and Landscape. Just like she preserves the beauty of each of her subjects in her paintings, her paintings are physically able to stand the test of time using proven traditional methods and techniques. Although she usually chooses her own subjects, Burns also works on commission.
Burns is based in Southern Oregon and has exhibited in group exhibitions at The Arkell Museum, Grants Pass Art Museum, Coos Art Museum, and other notable institutions. When she is not in her studio, she teaches at Project Space and Southern Oregon University. Her work has been featured in American Art Collector, Southern Oregon Magazine, and many other publications. In 2016, Burns was awarded the Hudson River Fellowship by the Grand Central Atelier.
