Artist StatementMy work is for the mixed media enthusiast who enjoys a wearable, fluid cultured experience intimately and externally
Sarah Juanita was born in Washington D.C. in 1988. Sarah works with mixed media and develops unique jewelry influenced by the art that she makes at that point in time. From paintings to creative wears, Sarah Juanita creates a critical, colorful, and playful outlet. Sarah is locally and internationally collected with enthusiasts such as the Kadampa Meditation Center, celebrity stylist to Beyoncé: Ty Hunter and jazz musician, Esperanza Spalding. She has made appearances in group exhibitions such as the Creativity Exchange at the Baltimore Museum of Art (2017), Maryland Art Place: Out of Order (2013) and Bromo Pop Up Gallery (2014). Sarah had published cover art for Scars (2014, Dr. A. Breeze Harper), a novel about whiteness, racism, and breaking past the normative boundaries of heterosexuality, as experienced through eighteen year old Savannah Penelope Sales.
