Sarah Burns is an observation-based painter working in the European tradition.  For nearly two decades, Sarah has been painting timeless subjects that include Figures, Still-life, and Landscape, while exploring her personal and cultural history. Just like she preserves the truth and 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.

Burns is based in Southern Oregon and has exhibited in group exhibitions at The Maryhill Museum, 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, among other publications. In 2016, Burns was awarded the Hudson River Fellowship by the Grand Central Atelier.
