About the Artist

Born into a life that turned out to be a canvas of unexpected discoveries, Sarah Kelly emerged as a beacon of creativity and resilience in the face of profound revelation. At the age of 56, a startling revelation shattered the illusion of identity, as Sarah learned that their heritage was Italian, not Irish and that their biological father was not the man they had known as father. This seismic shift in understanding ignited a journey of self-discovery that would profoundly influence Sarah’s artistic expression.

With her characteristic bravery and inquisitiveness, Sarah embraced her new reality and continued to find solace and inspiration in the realm of abstract art. Harnessing the emotional chaos unleashed by her revelation, she transformed her inner turmoil into a vibrant exploration of color, form, and texture. Her art became a mirror reflecting the intricacy of identity, a spectrum of hues resonating with the diverse shades of human experience.

With every brushstroke, Sarah Kelly delves deeper into the core of selfhood, surpassing conventional representation’s boundaries to embrace identity’s fluidity. Her work stands as a testament to the transformative potency of art, providing a haven where personal truths can be unearthed and celebrated. Through her exhibitions and installations, Sarah extends a compelling invitation to viewers, urging them to embark on a journey of introspection, to confront their own perceptions of identity and belonging.

Now, as Sarah continues to navigate the ever-evolving landscape of her narrative, her art remains a testament to the enduring resilience of the human spirit and the boundless potential of creative expression.
