Sarah Walker received her BFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts, Oakland and her MFA in Painting from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She currently resides in Worchester, Massachusetts where she is Visiting Artist in Residence / Gallery Director at Clark University. For Walker, painting and nature hold a similar allure: each has the capacity to devour anything and everything; all matter, memory, time, space, and aspects of the self are absorbed, reorganized, and transformed. Sarah Walker is interested in "maximalism" as a response to the density of the information age. If you have thoughts or artwork pertaining to this, please contact her by e-mail: email@example.com
