About Sarah

Sarah McKenzie was born in Connecticut in 1971 and grew up in New Jersey. The daughter of a land use planner, it is probably not coincidental that she would make paintings about development and construction as an adult. McKenzie received her BA in film studies from Yale University and her MFA in painting from the University of Michigan. After graduate school, she taught painting and drawing at the college level for eight years, including five years as a professor at the Cleveland Institute of Art. In 2006, she left her teaching position to pursue her studio work full time.

McKenzie was the 2006 First Place Winner of the National Young Painters Competition, hosted by Miami University. Her paintings have appeared in Art in America, New American Paintings, Dwell, Landscape Architecture, the Miami Herald, the Denver Post, and the New York Times online.

"I just looked at Sarah McKenzie's website - her paintings of the sides of factories and windows stirred up very personal associations. The first picture made me feel sad, but the second, which was subtly different, gave me a sense of familiar coziness. Pretty impressive."
