who is Sara K Udvig?
American painter, and public space maker born Saint Paul, Minnesota, 1977. I create people-centered projects for individuals, communities, businesses, cities, and organizations of all sizes. I do my part to support the expanding human spirit by offering spaces & opportunities to practice, play, share, create and be a more reverent earth dweller. If opportunity presents, I open my work to grandiose, messy-perfect, community collaboration because I appreciate that built relationships, personal growth, shared experience and other immaterial byproducts of art's process are of great service to the collective human spirit and are often more essential and lasting than resulting art objects. We all do better when we all do better.
I proudly serve on the board of directors for my local housing board- Neighborhood Development Alliance, I'm a 2017 alumni of the Creative Community Leadership Institute, I trained with Everyday Democracy to facilitate Dialogue to Change conversations to foster racial equity in MN. Daily I find a trail or a yoga mat to ready myself for what comes.
¨I love to make ideas come to life, especially for individuals and small businesses- many of the works I have executed have been the brainseed of the commissioner and my job is to translate their ideas into visual awesomeness.
More and more as we impact Earth with our materialism, I look to recycle and reclaim materials or work with zero impact.
