Sarah Angst grew up in Winnipeg, Canada and now lives in Bozeman, Montana. She is best known for her hand painted linoleum prints.
"I create my original linocuts by carving my drawing into a piece of linoleum. I then roll my carved block with ink and hand print the black outline onto strong printing paper. Once the ink has dried I bring the image to life by hand painting each print with professional watercolor inks. Since each original is painted by hand, the colors may vary slightly within the edition. Originals may take some time to complete."
“Printmaking forces me to simplify things; to find the essence of my subject and display it with line and color. With so many distractions in life, it is soothing to find something simple and serene, that grabs your attention, quiets the commotion and reminds you to slow down and enjoy the beauty in life.”
