Sarah Marshall is a visual artist interested in language, history, science, and the natural world. Using printmaking, photography, and drawing, she blends observable reality with belief, imaginary stories, and memory. Processes such as repetition, reversal, layering, and transfer serve as metaphors for our daily sensory and mental experiences, and our relationships with ourselves and each other. Sarah earned a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University, then an MA and MFA from The University of Iowa. She lives and works in Tuscaloosa, where she coordinates the printmaking program at The University of Alabama. She is a member of the Paperworkers Local print co-operative in Birmingham and has participated in workshops and residencies at the Taller de Gráfica Experimental de La Habana, the Frans Masereel Centrum in Belgium, Tamarind Institute, Penland School of Craft, and Arrowmont School of Art and Craft. Her work is exhibited nationally and internationally and is included in public and private collections across the U.S.
