Sara Barcus is an artist and illustrator living in San Antonio, Texas. She attended North East School of the Arts and San Antonio College for Visual Arts studies.
Sara has been working as an artist, silkscreener, designer, illustrator, and art director since 2004. She was the co-owner and operator of TurtleKing Silkscreen, a contributing artist at FLight at the Silos, worked with artist Robert Tatum, and showed at numerous galleries in Southtown including FLight (solo show in 2006), J&M Studios, Gallery 11, Hatch It, The Red Room, and more.
Sara’s work focuses heavily on the ideas of narrative, humanity, community, identity, and personal, and communal history. It is her hope to create work that connects people to each other by our shared tiny, unspoken, and personal moments, memories, and thoughts.
She is currently taking commissions for everything from family and pet portraiture to illustrations for children’s books and other print media.
Sara is also working on several new projects including Temporal Dichotomy, a series which explores the growth and deterioration that occur over the passing of time, The Science of You and Me, a children’s book about physics, and There Is Hope In This World, a mixed media series about the finding and maintaining the balance between reality and frivolity in the modern world.
