Abstract painter Sara Post was born in Texas but has spent her adult life in northern California. Post studied painting at Southern Methodist University and holds Masters’ in Ceramics and Art Education from Northern Arizona University. She has been a practicing artist since 1981, winning national acclaim for her glaze-painted ceramic work, starting with inclusion in Neiman-Marcus’s American Art Forms. In the past decade, her surfaces and media have evolved, leading her ultimately to a layering of paint, collage, and wax which, while nonrepresentational, speak to notions of personal history, change, and records thereof. Her current vein of work is held in numerous galleries and museums, and is featured in the seminal text, Cold Wax Medium: Techniques, Concepts and Conversations by Rebecca Crowell and Jerry McLaughlin.
