About Sarah

Sharing a deep love of animals is the goal of every piece of art Sarah Crumb creates. Sarah’s work utilizes a loose, illustrative and impressionistic style, defined by bold color combinations, and whimsical compositions. Her pieces bring a smile to the viewer’s face, and connects them to nature in a new way.

 

She has received recognition for her work from the Puget Sound Bird Fest where her painting of Black Oystercatchers won their annual poster contest in 2019. She was also awarded the ADG Award for her painting of a Red-lored Parrot as part of Tsuga Gallery’s Chroma 2019 exhibit. Her work has also been featured in advertisements for group shows at Parklane Gallery and Gallery North. She has created art pieces for several private commissions, and her work is held by private collections throughout the United States.

 

Sarah received her BA in Art History from the University of Washington, and her MA in Zoology, with a focus on connecting children to nature through arts-based activities from a partner program between Woodland Park Zoo and Miami University. She has been an artist since she was a small child, has worked with waterfowl and the education department at Woodland Park Zoo, and has been a teaching artist for a local private art school. She is a lifelong Washington State resident, and currently lives in Bothell, WA.
