Sara Scribner was born in 1982. Since her youth, she has had a deep passion for understanding the human condition. She began drawing at an early age, and her artistic interests have always focused upon the human figure.

Sara studied at, and in 2004 graduated from, the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. As a student, she studied with some of the most exciting contemporary figurative painter, including Xhaoming Wu and Kevin Moore. Sara explored and honed her artistic penchant for transcending mere portraiture, attempting to capture the subject’s ego and id.

Following graduation, Sara began her professional career by focusing on semi-abstract, expressive figurative work. Recently she has returned to her more classical roots. Her portraits are evocative and nuanced, while honoring classical figurative painting.

Sara is married to Shane Scribner, a fellow figurative painter who she met while studying at the Academy of Art. They have exhibited in galleries throughout their home state, and in juried competitions across the nation.
