Sara Rieger


     I received my BFA from Iowa State University in 2005. Currently I am working on a Master's in Art Education at the University of Iowa.
     Drawing and painting are my strengths, with oil, acrylic, and ink being my primary mediums.
     Thematically, I gravitate towards fairy tales, the surreal, and abstracted landscapes.
     Practically, I like to organize chaos. My favorite moment of painting is the moment when the pigment touches the water, spreads like wildfire and creeps along the ground in its organic, unpredictable way
     As my eleven year old daughter once said (rather melodramatically at the time, but it's a true sentiment): Art soothes my savage breast.
