The Charlottesville Arts and Entertainment magazine stated:
'Sarah Parks demonstrates her skillful talent to blend Impressionist elements with the Classical Realist tradition. She brings a contemporary sensibility to classical compositions and subjects. Parks’ polished brush strokes are softened by her natural palette. Her magnificent attention not only to detail but to surface texture is evident in her figure paintings…her figures are shaped by the accurate use of light and shadow. Parks’ unique style only heightens the artistic experience with her visually beautiful masterpieces.'
Sarah grew up in an artistic family and has had a passion to draw all her life. She admired the works of Rembrandt, Sargent, and Sorolla on visits to the major museums of New York, Philadelphia, London, Paris, Rome and Florence. Sarah earned two degrees (Magna cum Laude) in Art History and Studio Art from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.
In her study of portraiture, she is grateful to have been able to be guided by some of today’s finest portrait artists, such as Daniel Green, Michael Shane Neil, Paul Mccormack, Corinne Lilyard-Mitchell and mentored by Bart Lindstrom, John De La Vega and Net Bittinger.
Her love of other art genres has motivated Sarah to continually refine her technique through serious and intense study from some of the foremost landscape, still life, and figurative painters today. She is a member of the Oil Painters of America, Portrait Society of America, Cecelia Beaux Society, American Society of Portrait Artists, and the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club.
Her piece, 'The Shawl' was one of 30 out of 1,100 entries accepted into the American Women Artist's 2008 Juried Exhibition in Pasadena, California.
