Biography of Sarah-Jane
Medium of Choice
Sarah utilizes old car parts, recycled metal and most anything that she can find that would make her art look better. When she is done molding the trash together, she will usually spray paint her trash one metallic color so it will all match what she wants it to look like. She finds her materials through dumps that were going to be incinerated. Sarah also tended to make many mirrors as her recycled projects.
Examples of Sarah's Art
Junk Male was a project a little bit different than most of Sarah's usual projects because in this project she portrayed nudity. Which explains the title "Junk Male" because it is made of junk and the target audience was the male group.
Pigasus was a new and original twist on the Greek creature, Pegasus. This project made everyone who saw it smile because they had never expected such an unusual project. Since everyone loved "Pigasus" so much it sparked Sarah's sculptural career.
This project was one of Sarah's more common projects which was similar to the rest of her projects. However, this project which seems like it is similar to most of her other mirror projects is actually quite new for Sarah because it is one of the few of her projects that was not painted a metallic color.
