Sabrina Squires [Certified Member – Side Arts]
Sabrina Squires is a new Side Arts Certified Member. All cultures have creation stories that describe the culmination of earth and man. When disharmony enters that relationship, the earth and its inhabitants grow sick and suffer. Never before has there been such an opportunity to divorce the spirit of man and nature. This denial results in the withering of the collective living soul.
In opposition to the force that seeks this degradation, Sabrina Squires’ work is a continuous effort to keep that first primitive connection. The natural world is a challenging mentor who constantly inspires her to spend hours observing its details and reinterpreting them through her own creative ability. The product is a manifestation of that connection – a way she shows reverence and gratitude for this living place she calls home.
Sabrina’s work begins with a layer of altered National Geographic pages and builds through layers of ink, charcoal, and acrylic paint. She uses these media because of the depth, texture, and vibrancy they allow in her paintings.
