Bloomington Open Studios Tour

Sara Steffey McQueen

I have been painting in watercolors for over 40 years. My technique is direct inspirations of nature. I also was trained at I.U. as a printmaker and I love handmade papers. Therefore, I also enjoy creating with collage and printmaking. I have a group of "bodies of work" as I am divergent and have many loves. Some of these I call "Inner Landscapes". In them, i explore my appreciation of many esoteric directions such as Tarot, I Ching, Sufi and other religions. I create "Personal Mandalas" as part of this inner exploration. These are created in collaboration with the client's own interests and directions. I am a Signature Member of the Bloomington Watercolor Society and the Watercolor Society of Indiana.
