Sarah Megan Jenkins
Nature provides balance, stress relief, a stronger mentality and can leave one feeling physically refreshed. From weather patterns to the cycles of the season, nature's beauty flows through the earth from top of the atmosphere to the deep ocean bottoms. My work, which ranges in materials, seeks to capture this push and pull of nature's all encompassing energies and remind the viewer that they too can find tranquility through nature's rhythm.
I work from home as a full time artist in the small town of Madisonville, Louisiana. My studio is constantly filled with many canvases, bags of clay, and plants.
