Biography



 
    Colorado realist Sarah Phippen portrays the West with an understanding that comes from a deep love of the land, people and animals of the region in which she was born and raised. Sarah’s formal training began with private lessons when she was 14. Since then she has studied with prominent artists John Coleman for sculpting, and painters Jay Moore, Jim Norton, Daniel Sprick, Sandra Kaplan, and Anthony J. Ryder, each of whom deepened her understanding of oil painting, color and composition.
 
In 2013 she was honored at the Phippen Museum Western Art Show and Sale, with the Joe Beeler CA Foundation Award, which recognizes an artist who exemplifies the quality of work and spirit of the West. In 2015 Western Art Collector honored her with an award for her body of work, and her work was recognized as a finalist in the 2015 International ARC Salon, a competition of contemporary realist artists. She won the American Academy of Equine Art's Award of Excellence in the spring, 2017.

I see this heritage as part of our age-old relationship with animals; it is part of being human, a privilege that surrounds us every day.”
 

 
    Phippen has been featured in Western Art Collector, and has been invited to participate in numerous national exhibitions including the Cattlemen’s Western Art Show and Sale, Paso Robles, CA; the San Dimas Western Art Show, San Dimas, CA; [...]
