“A true artist is not one who is inspired but one who inspires others.” —Salvador Dalí
Art Sarah Stieber, exalted as “San Diego’s Best Local Contemporary Artist” by Modern Luxury magazine declares that creating art has allowed her to make space for those who inspire her most. In the same way she told Sara McLean for a recent interview with Dunn-Edwards Paints, “My paintings also serve as a personal guide. I paint my way into the type of mindset I aspire to cultivate and into the type of person I’d like to grow into. I hope that my paintings can inspire all women to cultivate and celebrate the most expressed and authentic versions of themselves.”
Sarah Stieber certainly inspires me. The light, color, forms, and contrast that she brings into each painting shows the best in each person. Just like the classic yoga mantra, “Namaste,” she exhibits the meaning, “The divine light within me honors the divine light within you.”
Her paintings have been exhibited worldwide and were recently featured on billboards in Times Square New York, Picadilly circus in London, and on the Duomo in Milan. Stieber was named “One of 15 Female Artists you Need to Know from Miami Art Week” by CBS and “One of 50 badass painters you need to follow on Instagram” by Buzzfeed.
