ABOUT THE ARTIST
Raised on a diet of nature, traditional handcrafts, and pots of tea, in a small country town on the coast of New Zealand, Artist Sara Catena moved to Melbourne in 1992.
A local Frankston resident, Sara’s uplifting and naïve work inspires art teachers and students worldwide…she has worked with teachers and children from places as far flung and diverse as Bahrain, Barcelona and Uruguay…she delights in seeing the results and connecting with them personally via skype.
“As a painter, I work narratively with acrylic, oil stick and embroidery thread on recycled elements. These works express my natural delight and enthusiasm for life… a vitality and a joy that speaks to the heart. My beautiful sensory installations are highly kinaesthetic immersive art spaces aimed to soothe additional needs families at large events.”
“In the space between you and the work, is a bridge. My hope is that you cross that bridge and find some Joy there.”
