About Me

Hi World!

I'M sarah Mccord

Why is the humming bird my logo?  

As creative, I see myself as a hummingbird. Aside from their vibrant use of color, they are playful, enjoy a bit of conflict and seem to love an audience. At times my  creative energy flows similarly to a hummingbird changing course in any direction at a moment’s notice or even halting while flying at full speed, alternating between total stillness and explosive energy.  But I am also finding it is important to remember that hummingbirds are also nurturing, providing tender caring in well crafted nests . . . As I continue my journey, I find that not only the hummingbird but many other birds “sing the song of my spirit” as I paint them.  

I hope you also find your birdsong here.

Inspiration

I was born in Albuquerque and consider myself a "New Mexico grown artist".  I have always experienced a sense of peace and deep connectedness in the presence of nature, particularly, with what my grandmother called  the  “whispering” ponderosa pines and the generous, cascading applause of yellowing aspen of Flagstaff, Arizona  where I spent some of my childhood.  

I love traveling throughout the southwest and and have come to rely on the clarifying effects of the open skyline,  to trust the ombre desert stone formations for their grounding abelites, and  look to  the alien, diverse, survivalist desert vegetation which make up the various desert regions of New Mexico and Arizona to inspire the imagination.  

ARTS PRACTICE

Since childhood I  have always created objects of gift giving since childhood  as well as  relying on artmaking as a mode of self-exploration, self-expression, performance, and communication.    

I continue to use the principles of “gifting” art to others through my workshops, social justice activism and involvement in both my local and international arts community.  I share my insights and help build arts and entrepreneurship  community through my role as co host at The Wet Stuff Podcast and also live on Facebook.

A participant in the Prison Creative Arts Program and Creative Catalyst, I increasingly rely on art making, collaboration and critique as a means of forming connection, community, growth and healing.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Works shown in galleries such as Tortuga Gallery, Mothership Alumni, OFF Center, OT Circus, Art on the Rio,  and the Metaphysical Art Gallery . Always an intuitive in my path to artistic growth and creative development, I have self-selected the teachers and influences she feels most relevant to my developing artistic practice including Kerry Dunn, Rachel Powpowcer, Dorielle Caimi, Shawna Levenson and the mentorship of Sean Wells as well as committed involvement with my local arts community including alliances formed through local arts group Coffee and Creatives.
