“When I paint, I strive to free my spirit, observant and meditative, to reflect my endless appreciation of the natural world.” Sara Lubinski is an American landscape painter. Always an artist, her recent return to the craft followed a period of working as a botanist. Her science career included time spent learning about the nature of the Mississippi River and many of our national parks. The beauty of these landscapes catalyzed her transition back to the easel. She loves weaving the threads of science and art together, resulting in deeply expressive paintings of the natural world.
