Sarah Henry


Hometown: Adrian, MI

Discipline: Painting


The feel and style of Sarah Henry’s art could be placed under the category of “Dark Optimism.” She likes to develop a dual layer of imagery: the feeling of something traditional and bright, with a dark humorous twist. In her Family Portrait series, she painted skulls instead of more traditional portraits of her family members. This work shows that we all have the same bare bones; it is what we surround ourselves with that makes us unique.

Sarah’s medium is a mix of acrylic paint, oil paint pens and various mixed media on wood boards.
