Sarah Aileen is a painter and designer living in Seattle, Washington. She works with interior designers and individuals to create custom artwork for residential and commercial spaces. 

Sarah studied at Concordia University, Ann Arbor, Michigan; earning a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design. Upon graduating, she gave in to practical thoughts about making it in the “real world” and made a pivot into accounting, followed by wealth management. After a couple of decades passed, she decided to return to the entrepreneurial world of artists and creatives.
Her current work focuses on hard-edge painting; the bold minimalism is a nod to her graphic design background, love of editing, and fascination with striking color combinations.


Artist Statement

Color is a force. I use the design of my paintings to emphasize and explore the impact of color, in the context of hard-edge painting and minimalism. I have always been drawn to the interplay between seemingly unrelated colors and shapes. I often apply strong contrast to proportions to create visual tension in my pieces. The dynamic angles and broad, saturated color fields create energy that is experienced uniquely by each viewer.
