SARAH BOLERJACK - #3
831 Glasgow Avenue
My education began at age seven in a small dusty library in Kansas. Instead of Dr. Seuss I would bring home lovely big art books. The Renaissance was my favorite. My young brain set about turning all information into a drawing.
In some circles I am called self-taught, but in my mind I was a very small person sitting at the feet of five thousand years of greatness.
My first show featuring only my work was at Marymount College in Salina, Kansas. I was seventeen.
Life and art went on, hand in hand. Galleries, some exhibits, I did not keep track because the purpose was to illuminate the remarkable world I was born into. I took classes here and there to learn specific techniques, but there was never enough time to take out of life for a degree.
When I was thirty-two I learned intaglio printmaking. Once again, my work went into small galleries, artists guilds, street shows, and once in a while an invitational art exhibit.
I am happy to say my work is all over the world, bought by nice people that I hope found themselves in the images.
The lovely women and children that dance through my images are real people that have touched my life. I hope that the imagination of my work has helped them understand how boundless we as human beings really are.
