SARA A. WILCOX

EDUCATION
Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art (6/1996) Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ
Emphasis on Print, Painting, Ceramics Santa Barbara City College, Santa Barbara, CA

Born: Santa Barbara, California

I am fascinated with line, form and color and how they intermingle. I love studying and playing with form and color until I am blue in the face. Much of my paintings are abstract, with the occasional inspired illustration of some form of nature, the human body. My newest series has taken on a Picasso feel, with rich, thick, black lines, bright colors and striking poses and faces.
