Sarah Caton Wynne's passion for painting began in elementary school. Even at that young age, her left brain fought for dominance and her teacher fought back by making her use unexpected color in surprising places. Sarah didn’t see purple in the sky, but her teacher either encouraged her to look again or brushed some there anyway. Life isn’t always literal and neither is art, and Sarah's work remains based in these truths.
Sarah's studio is in her Houston home, filled with light and across from the playroom where young voices punctuate her palette. She looks out over a bayou full of life and nature, always changing and inspiring. That same bayou flooded her home during Hurricane Harvey, a constant reminder that life, like water en route to the Gulf of Mexico, is always in flux – good for her right brain and, therefore, her art.
