ABOUT
SARAH    GREENIER

 

Growing up on Orr's Island gave me a special feeling for Maine coast life. I graduated from Oak Grove School in Vassalboro, and went on to study Graphic Design at Pratt Institute in New York. After college, I returned to Maine and worked as a commercial artist and Art Director for ten years. Then, in 1996 I began exhibiting & selling my paintings at art shows throughout New England, where I won numerous awards. And, in 2006 my husband, Tom and I opened Greenier Studio/Gallery next to our home at 428 Middle Street in Bath, where I exhibit my work, paint and teach.

I started out painting in watercolor - Maine coastal scenes and still lifes. I switched over to oils after a few years, when I began plein air painting as I found them to be more workable outdoors. My husband also loves plein air painting, so it's been a joy painting along the coast together. For many years we took summer painting vacations to Monhegan, Acadia and Stonington. Last summer, we had the opportunity to paint in Provence, France, which was a wonderful experience. We painted on the French coast in Cassis, and the lavender fields of Bonneaux. We got to visit Monet's Garden in Giverny, and I painted a large oil from that trip of Monet's famous water lily garden. I love teaching painting as well, and offer 3 workshops in oil and acrylic painting each year. You can find more information on upcoming classes on the Gallery & Schedule page. I have also taken many advanced workshops over the years, most recently with Larry Moore, John C Traynor and Don Demers. I feel it is important to constantly be growing as an artist.

I enjoy painting quintessential Maine scenes. My paintings depict island and coastal living at its best, and convey a sense of place. Outdoor painting is exhilarating, and that feeling shows in our work. My goal is to
convey an emotion, and to evoke it in the viewer as well.

Sarah Greenier Studio/Gallery, is at 428 Middle Street in Bath. We are open weekdays from 2 to 4 pm, and by chance or appointment. I am often in the gallery at other times, or painting closeby. So if I don't happen to be here, just give me a call at {207} 443-3936, thanks!

Warmest Regards,
Sarah Greenier
