About the Artist:
There is something deeply rewarding about creating. This drive challenges me to filter my experiences through a uniquely personal lens which I can then open to others for adding their own interpretations. Layers are a theme in my work, which begins with a layer of altered National Geographic pages and builds through coats of ink, charcoal, and acrylic paint. Mixed media allow me to explore the vibrant hues, varying textures, and organic lines found in nature. I am also a deeply spiritual and colorful soul, which is readily apparent in my paintings; I find it challenging to limit my palette. Some pieces are straightforward – a lovely lake or delicate flower can speak for itself. Others are conceptually deeper, becoming vehicles to various thoughts that are important to share. Nature transports people to places of quiet contemplation, both of the world outside of them and the one deep within.Sabrina Squires grew up in Idaho Falls, ID, with a family who supported her artistic abilities from a young age. She moved to Provo, UT, where she still resides, to earn a BFA in Studio Arts, Emphasis in Painting, from Brigham Young University in 2006. She enjoys painting daily in her studio and participates in the local art scene as well as national and international art competitions. She enjoys the outdoor scene Utah offers and spends much of her time hiking both the Wasatch and High Uinta ranges and allowing her adventures to inform her artwork.
