Sarah Stockstill is a prolific artist whose inspiration comes from a career steeped in photography and the humble beginnings of an artist's apprentice. Her style explores imagery that evokes the deep sense of emotional passion that lies within the psyche. Her style suggests an almost longing for simplicity, yet contains a depth that seems almost impossible to grasp. The rich colors beg for attention by being simply beautiful, and at the same time they are covered in a sublime, almost transparent layer that speaks to the hidden secrets of a world undiscovered, one that is even more beautiful than what is apparent on the surface.
Born in Arizona, Stockstill overcame the adversity of her youth and found harmony in the desert, melding it with the contemporary influences found in the landscape of Los Angeles. Finding solace in the beauty of a multicolored world, she continues to create work that is both subliminal in texture and distinct in composition that is sought out by collectors from around the world.
"There is as very common question put to one who is trying to be creative in a given medium. “Why do you do this, and how do you do this?” The easiest way that I can answer, is that they paint themselves. I am only the vehicle trying to share these mental studies, a visual instigator. I may or may not be an artist, yet I know that I am a painter."
