Sara Long was born and raised deep in the Redwood Forest of Northern California. As a child of farmers, she lived a fairly secluded life, both physically and emotionally. She learned to commune with nature, making the birds, ferns, ancient trees, light, and fog her friends. Those relationships have stayed with her and she finds herself, decades later, painting those sacred bonds. How Sara displays her work is as important as the work itself, for she believes in creating special, warm, and approachable spaces for all people to interact with. In the summer of 2017, Sara had a guerrilla style painting installation at the neighborhood park centered around a weathered Cedar that had to be partially cut down due to disease. Daughters of Summer brought love and life back to the tree, musing her with paintings, flowers, and pink cloth streamers.
Currently Sara lives on the rocky coast of Trinidad, California, where she spends her days painting and tidepooling with her rescue Doberman, Billie.
