Listen to the silence. It has so much to say.
She calms her mind and quiets her soul through daily meditation.
Daily meditation allows her to be exposed. This vulnerability has helped her discover her artistic voice and has allowed her to be able to dig deep within herself to find her own truth.
Sarah Renzi Sanders is a mixed media artist and mother of three. Meditation helps with her anxiety and also allows her to paint without restrictions.
After her youngest son was born, she started her own business selling her paintings. This year, she has been focused on building her body of work. As 2019 is nearing its end, the beginning of a new journey has just begun. This year, her youngest son was diagnosed with Autism.
It is my goal to help people to see Autism not as a disorder, but as a unique ability. My son’s brain works differently but that does not mean he should be limited. I strive to see the world the way he sees it everyday.
Her dream like paintings display a vulnerable narrative of the various identities she has had throughout her life. Some are reflective of past memories and events as a young girl, while others are a current manifestation of her journey through motherhood.
My work examines life’s struggle for balance and the masks women are conditioned to wear to hide their hopes, fears, and truth.
Her motherhood journey started after she got pregnant with her daughter in college. Since then, her life has bloomed in so many ways she could have never foreseen. Her paintings often include the representation of “the third eye”. The third eye not only represents spiritual awakening, but also represents her faith and trust in the stage of life she is in right now. She has taken the idea behind the all seeing eye, and created a jewelry line of wearable eyes.
This is the tightrope that Sara walks.
What tightrope do you walk?
