Sara Morrissey Sara is at Studio #6 on the 2022 tour.
After retiring from a 20 year legal career, I started exploring art by taking a fused glass class at the OSU Craft Center in 2003. It eventually led to a new career path as a glass artist. After working as a glass artist for many years, I have now shifted to abstract painting. At this stage of my life, my emphasis is on the process more than the product. With painting, I enjoy a playfulness and spontaneity that was unavailable with glass, which requires much more precision and planning. I primarily work in watercolor as I love its fluidity and flow. I also incorporate acrylics, charcoal, graphite, ink and other media in my work. I am driven by curiousity and a desire to experiment. Color, mark making and texture are my primary interests. My picture shows me with the output of a wonderful 10 week painting course I took in 2021 with British artist Louise Fletcher. The course "Find Your Joy" was all about letting go of results and discovering the pure joy of playing with paint.
