Art of Spring

Artist in Residence: Sarah Richards Samuelson

This year we have invited well-loved painter Sarah Samuelson to partner with us as our first ever Artist in Residence.

As a child, Sarah was constantly drawing and painting. She continued to nurture her talents and skills as an artist and received her BFA degree from Brigham Young University. She went on to teach at Utah Valley University for several years, teaching painting, drawing, color theory, and art history.

Sarah loves to watch her brush put down colors, shapes, and textures; the way they complement and invigorate each other intrigues her. She paints to preserve the beauty that is around her. The artist says painting is a spiritual process for her. It is a way for her to express her gratitude for the beauty of God’s creations, in a format that can be shared with all.

She prepares her surface by first thinking about the color palette that will be used. She paints abstractly at first, then sketches the image with soft vine charcoal, fixes the drawing onto the surface, and continues to paint, letting the early processes show through in her finished piece of art. Sarah is constantly sketching her surroundings. Many of her paintings come from her sketch books.

Stop by her tent located just past the creek between the Rose Garden and the Grand Allee for a chance to meet Sarah, watch her create a digital painting, find out where she might be set-up making traditional painting, and just absorb a little of her infectious passion for tulips and the Ashton Gardens.
