faNcy meeting you here. "I quench my thirst for creativity through saturation and obsessive detail.”
Born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina, Sarah White, known as “Swhitey”, received her BA in Studio Art from the College of Charleston in May of 2016. From this, she continues to master her painting and drawing skills.
Now as an independent artisT, Swhitey uses her expertise with oils, acrylics, and ink pen to create. The artist is inspired by surfaces of light reflection, gemstones, costume jewelry, slimy things, wet subjects, bizarre shapes, and busy lines. Her artistic process differs from rendering from still life objects, photographs of objects, and objects from imagination.
Swhitey’s compositions are busy, chaotic, and unique. Each shape and line play a part, in turn fulfilling some sort of purpose within the frame. She explains how this represents the individuality of every human being, all existing within the bounds of earth with no person, or their role, being the exact same. From this, Swhitey wants to remind her audience of their worth, and how their version of different is a gift.
