"The only thing that matters is, did it turn out like I wanted it? If you're chasing after positive reviews, demographic trends or a lucrative box office, you've already failed. But, if your only ambition is to get something off your chest and render it exactly as you wanted it, then you're bulletproof" --Ricky Gervais
Sarah Boyts Yoder is a mixed media painter living and working in Charlottesville, VA. Sarah uses materials ranging from pencil, spray paint, and house paint to create her multilayered, mixed media paintings. A love of color, collage, design and typography drive the search for a balance between sophistication and simplicity, and cartoon-like expression and eloquent abstraction. She finds inspiration high and low, drawing from Abstract Expressionist and Pop Art theory and the childrens books, illustrations, and cartoons she experiences with her small children Sofia and Zeke.
She received an MFA in painting from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia in 2006 and her BFA in painting from Eastern New Mexico University.
