Sarah Aileen is an artist based in Seattle, Washington. She specializes in hard-edge painting and abstract minimalism. Her artistic style is a nod to her education in graphic design, love of editing, and fascination with color theory.

She collaborates with interior designers and collectors to create custom artwork. Her work is characterized by monochromatic fields of color that complement modern design and architecture and pop when juxtaposed with organic materials such as stone and wood. Sarah Aileen’s works are in collections across the United States, as well as Canada and Australia.



I use the design of my paintings to emphasize and explore the interaction of color, in the context of hard-edge painting and minimalism. I often apply strong contrast to proportions to create visual tension in my pieces. The concept of balance informs my current work; particularly the relationship between positive and negative space. I enjoy using minimalism to extract an idea from its original environment and place it on its own where it can be observed and appreciated. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than a precise, clean line.

Favorite Hobby | Convincing everyone she meets that she hasn’t been fed in ages. The result has been an untold number of treats from sympathetic humans; notably: several ounces of sliced turkey from a bodega, countless freeze-dried liver treats, and a Milk-Bone intended for a dog four times her size.
