Sarah aka, Sassafrass, is an artist and designer in Somerville, MA. She makes abstract mixed media paintings, prints, coasters and tote bags inspired by the complex shapes found in nature.
I strive to create vibrant, organic landscapes that bring an unexpected visual surprise to the viewer. Nature and vibrant colors are my main sources of inspiration. I take artistic influences from the swirling abstract forms of Miró, the cutout paper shapes of Matisse, and the iridescent gold and ornate detail of Klimt. I also have a love for the retro shapes found in the 1940’s and 50’s. I’d like people to be transported to an alternative dimension that makes the viewer forget the stress and fast pace of our world.
