Sara Hardin was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1994. Her stepfather's tattoo shop is where 7-year-old Sara first interacted with artists and learned to experiment with her own drawings.Her interest in art led her to major in Art Education at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where she earned her B.A in 2016. Sara began working as an Art Teacher in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, but took her first opportunity to return to her beloved home state and is now a full-time teacher of high school students of all ability levels, from Art I to Advanced Placement.
Sara has always understood that the Louisiana landscape was something special. With her recent research into pollution, climate change, and the dwindling Louisiana coastline, she felt it was important to bring awareness to these issues. Sara is focusing on Louisiana Native plants to bring awareness to the importance of preserving the landscapes for both humans and wildlife. The angular and fragmented landscape that Sara portrays is not intended to be a literal reflection of the subject but rather is employed to immerse viewers in the rushing movement of city life while offering a chance to simultaneously appreciate the natural beauty around them.
