"I was born an artist and I have spent a lifetime developing my talent.  It is amazing how much I still have to learn."

Sara Shreffler Eyestone (12·12·43) is known for the glorious colors on her palette. Her paintings are commissioned by private collectors and published internationally as Caspari note cards, calendars, art posters, limited editions and as a signature line of products including fabrics and intricate woven tapestries.

As a young artist Sara left her family home in the mountains of New Mexico and settled on the Jersey Shore an hour by train from New York. It was there that she developed her talent while attracting a following of collectors, press, and publishers. By 1986 the art of Sara Eyestone had been featured throughout the country in 50 one-woman shows. Her design titled THE GOLDEN LADY was chosen as the official Statue of Liberty commemorative plate, and The New Jersey State Museum had a large retrospective exhibition of her paintings and drawings borrowed from private collectors.

Sara’s work has been the subject of countless articles including three cover stories for Jersey Woman Magazine. She is one of a small handful of American artists featured on NBC’s Today Show, and she has been honored by her Senators as a businesswoman of achievement.

Eyestone presents business workshops for artists of all levels of expertise interested in supporting themselves with their art. Her creative approach to the business of art has empowered and inspired hundreds of her fellow artists in workshops and seminars titled "Art Business-A Creative Approach", "Success", "I'm Getting My Act Together and Taking It On the Road", and a studio workshop for artists titled "Painting with Painters"

Today Sara Eyestone welcomes visitors from all over the world to her private gallery on the famous river walk in downtown San Antonio, Texas.  She continues to paint for the art lovers who commission her, draw their children and grandchildren, and travel to her workshops and signing parties. Blossoms from The Rose Garden at The White House grace both of her easels. "This is a collection I am painting for posterity, but then I feel that way about all of my work."

Contact Sara Eyestone for an appointment if you and yours are interested in visiting, and she and her husband will welcome you with open arms! 210-281-1670, sara@saraeyestone.com
