Thick paint is a prime focus in the collection of work created by artist Sarah LaPierre. Palette knives and heavy bodied acrylic paints provide the full textures and vibrant colors that are characteristics of her style. Sarah gains her inspiration from the beautiful sceneries throughout her home state of Florida, with special focus skyward. Her late father, artist Joseph LaPierre remains the strongest influence in her creative ventures. Sarah’s artwork can be found globally in the homes of her many patrons, brightening the walls of professional offices and businesses, as well as locally through gallery events and showcases at fine arts festivals throughout south Florida.
