Sarah Aileen is a painter and designer living in Seattle, Washington. She works with individuals and companies 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 geometric abstraction; 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 geometric abstraction 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.
