Sara Trumet is a self-taught artist that has incorporated a variety of mediums in her work over the past 20 years. She finds inspiration from galleries, street art, local events, color, art shows, and other artists' work. Sara uses vibrant colors that reflect and process her mood and emotions. All her paintings are abstract expressions of the events in her life.
Sara has had several of her paintings displayed in the State Capital, in Senator Jose Rodriguez's office. Sara has participated in numerous local art shows, including The Cherrywood Art Fair, RAW, Art Saved Us, Summer Show ATX, Conception Art Shows, Chocolate and Art, Tillery! Live, and the West Austin Studio Tour. She currently has 20 original pieces displayed in Max's Wine Dive's private event room in downtown Austin. She has also been commissioned for private sales, including a piece for a local apartment clubhouse, and a piece for the penthouse floor of The Catherine luxury condos in downtown Austin.
Sara is also an educator. She is currently a STEAM teacher where she integrates her love of science, technology, engineering, art and math. Sara lives in south Austin with her super-fun 8-year-old son and two cats.
I use a variety of mediums when I paint to experiment with, take risks, and push myself. I like to play with different color combinations and styles that coexist and dance together on the canvas. At any given time, I may have some oil paintings that I'm working on, several acrylic pieces that I'm taping, layering, and drying as I go, or I may be mixing paint to create fluid art. The overarching theme that connects my abstract paintings are that they tend to include an array of bright colors.
Art is my way of sharing my vulnerabilities, perspectives, and desires with others. Art heals, relaxes, invigorates, inspires, and helps me process the emotions I'm feeling in my daily life. Although I create art to express my own thoughts and creativity, I know that art can also provide healing, happiness, peace and inspiration to others, as other artists' creations have done for me. I believe art is an ongoing evolutionary process, a visual diary of my experiences that continue to grow and change as I also develop as a human.
