Welcome

Sometimes It’s Kinda Blue on display at Roche Bobois in Portland Oregon.

Described as “engrossingly emotive” and “visually innovative”, artist Sara Sjol takes her love of line and color and weaves them together in a vibrant and visual manner that carries through both her paper and mixed media works.

“I have always looked at the world through my own lens. I was first intrigued with graphics — shapes, squares, patterns, and form which lead me to countless creative endeavors. My technique evolved organically. From pattern and line doodles in notebooks, to some ink and watercolor experiments on a left-over piece of screen printing paper, to the paintings I am doing today.”

Sjol’s work is held in collections from San Diego to Seattle. Her work also currently featured at Portland International Airport. In 2014 Sjol was selected as Artslandia Performance Annual’s Cover Artist along with a feature in the magazine.

Sara is also founder of The Recycled Rain Project; a Portland-based non-profit that curates a juried art show featuring new works created by incorporating rainwater. Each cycle features different local artists, with a percentage of sales donated to water-related charities.
