In 2009, Sara Bardin started creating art to relieve herself from the daily stresses of life. She started with portraits of her family members and a few years later while visiting the national US Botanic Garden and became inspired to paint flowers. She found that a flowers beauty, color, and texture evoked deep emotions. She aims to convey this emotion through the color and artistry of her botanicals renderings.
Ms. Bardin has a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design from the University of Dayton and has been recently studying painting at The Compass Atelier. She has exhibited at the Maryland Federation of Art “Strokes of Genius” Juried Exhibition, Montgomery Arts Association Paint the Town Kensington Labor Day Show Juried Exhibition, Annual Labor Day Art Show at Glen Echo Park, Hill Center Galleries Juried Exhibition, and the Washington ArtWorks “A Burst of Color” Juried Exhibition.
Her family means the world to her. When she is not painting, she is spending time with her daughters. Whether it is attending their volleyballs games, or catching a movie, the time she spends with them is priceless. She also has them critique her work. She has been known to go back into a painting on the advice of one of her daughters after she believed it to be finished.
She currently resides in Washington, DC with her husband and two daughters.
