She enjoys working to capture their attention to detail and delicate glazing techniques. In 2004 Sarah entered her first National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society (NOAPS) Best of America! show. As a result of her participation and accolades in the annual NOAPS Best of America! shows, she was recognized as a Master Signature Artist of NOAPS in 2006.
