About the Artist
Sarah Angst grew up in Winnipeg, Canada and graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth in 2001 with a BFA in Art Education. Sarah moved to Bozeman, Montana in January 2007. Since moving to Montana she has she has focused on creating a wide variety of linoleum block prints, and the response to her work has been amazing.
With its graphic qualities and bright colors, Angst’s work appeals to a wide range of people. Most of her prints are small and quaint, displaying the effortless beauty in everyday subject matter. Many of Angst’s pieces reflect her love of nature, her passion for color, and her sense of humor.
“Printmaking forces me to simplify things; to find the essence of my subject and display it with line and color. With so many distractions in life it is soothing to find something simple and serene, that grabs your attention, quiets the commotion and reminds you to slow down and enjoy the beauty in life.
I like creating pieces that seem familiar to people; that help remind them of fond memories from their own lives. When I finish a piece and feel it has a timeless nostalgic quality, I hope I hit on something that will resonate with others.
I have always loved creating art ever since I was a little girl. Putting elements together until they look and feel just right is very rewarding. Having others respond so positively to what I’ve created is even better.”
From her original linocuts Angst has now created a wide array of handmade products featuring her images, including jewelry, ornaments, greeting cards, and giclée reproductions.
