At Sarah B. it begins with the philosophy that we can make a difference.

It starts by incorporating better materials such as natural fabrics like cotton and linen, and hand printing our designs using eco-friendly water based inks.

We strive to reduce our environmental impact by making thoughtful decisions as they relate to our materials and construction processes.

Our small accessories and bag linings are made using fabric remnants - a great means of reducing our waste.

These choices reflect our core values - that however small, we have a responsibility to "do our part”

We understand that by embracing a slow, more sustainable approach, our methods may not reflect the least expensive nor fastest route in which to bring product to market however we believe it results in a better quality product overall.

At Sarah B. we place emphasis on the art of making and we celebrate the skills required to do so.

Watercolor Dots Series - New Surface Patter Design

Working outside your comfort zone is the only way to gauge if you are moving in the right direction. That uncomfortable feeling is a sure sign that you are stretching your abilities and reaching for something new.  I have a somewhat "love hate" relationship with my watercolor paints. I am fearful that I am not good enough, that my shapes/lines will not necessarily "translate" well to others. I know and can understand that a specific "blob" is meant to be (for instance) a leaf shape-but will anyone else appreciate the subtleties? Will a complete stranger realize my vision for a specific piece and embrace what I was hoping to project? How people view art is a funny thing-one person see something wonderful and the next just "doesn't get it" I am fearful that my art will fall into the latter category.  So I practice, practice, practice-watercolor painting requires skill and patience (as noted in an earlier blog post something I struggle with) I hope these first few painting from my "Dots" mixed media series are just the beginning of many more pieces to come
