Upper School Art Teacher, Sarah Teal’s Artistic Journey

Last week, Ms. Teal shared her artistic journey with Lower School students.  Below is her commentary:
Art has been something that has brought me much joy my entire life.  I view my art as a personal expression that reflects how I view myself and how I view the world.  Painting and journaling are similar experiences for me because they help me visualize what is going on in my heart. 
Self-portraits are my focus, which are done in many ways.  My dreams have become an important part of imagery, where I often will have a dream, wake up to journal it, draw a picture of it, and then make a full painting based off of it.
Fashion also plays a role in my paintings, as another symbol of personal identity.  There are several symbols that often appear in my work.  A few of these symbols include tigers, birds and flowers. Tigers represent inner courage and strength, birds represent the bringing of good news, and flowers represent hope as well as growth.
My art will continue to change, as I change. Click here to review her artistic journey.
