Sarah Angst grew up in Winnipeg, Canada and attended the University of Minnesota – Duluth for college. In 2007 she moved with her husband to Bozeman, Montana, where she took the plunge to become a full time artist.
After years of traveling to art fairs across the country, Sarah knew that nomadic lifestyle would not be sustainable, especially if she wanted to start a family.
Sarah Angst Cards began in 2011 with a decision to create affordable reproductions of her bright & bold, hand painted linocuts. Customers were so drawn to her beautiful imagery that greeting cards seemed like the perfect medium to share her art with a vast audience - without being on the road.
With compliments from buyers like, “We buy them by the handful!”, she knew her choice to create greeting cards was the right one. People from all walks of life find special designs they want to give, keep, or frame.
Most of Sarah’s original pieces are small and quaint, displaying the effortless beauty in everyday subject matter. They reflect her love of nature, her passion for color, and her sense of humor.
“My approach to art forces me to simplify things; to find the essence of my subject and display it with line and color. With so many distractions in life, it is soothing to enjoy something simple and serene, that grabs your attention, but also reminds you to slow down and enjoy the beauty in life.
I like creating pieces that seem familiar to people; that help remind them of fond memories from their own lives. When I finish a piece and it has a timeless nostalgic quality, my hope is that feeling will resonate with others as well.
I have always loved creating art - ever since I was a little girl. Putting elements together until they look and feel just right is very rewarding. Having others respond so positively to what I’ve created is even better.”
*From her originals, Angst creates a wide array of products featuring her images, including greeting cards, jewelry, ornaments, and giclée reproductions. All Sarah Angst Art is Made in the USA - Created & Reproduced in Bozeman, Montana*
