Winter Featured Artist: Sarah Rocheleau
Artist’s Biography and Statement
I am a local artist from Cincinnati, OH. I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor’s in Illustration from the Art Academy of Cincinnati. That same year I received an Award for Excellence in the Visual from the Independent College and Universities of Ohio. Since 2013, I have been working out of my studio at the Pendleton Art Center in Over-the Rhine, Cincinnati. My art is on display in Studio 414 in the Pendleton Art Center and also on display at MiCA 12/v in Over-the-Rhine. My work has been featured in two motion pictures and I am currently working as an art director in a third motion picture being produced in Hollywood California. I am also the head artist on a graphic novel for the same production. I have instructed art privately, in after school programs, and fine art centers. I paint, sculpt, draw, and digitally collage art work inspired by my fascination with Historical Fashion, the natural world, and Philosophy. I create to enhance and elucidate the underlying structure of my personal life and the world around me. Hope these artworks peak your curiosity and imagination!
