Over at her shop and also on her webpage you can see the freewheeling and happy world in which Sara's creatures dance, play, and sleep (often leaving the puny humans to curl up at the bed's foot, which isn't all that far removed from standard snooze procedure around here). Her world is a place where cheer and chillaxing makes everything flow sweetly. This comes truly, as you can see in this excerpt from her shop statement about the Native American respect for creation that inspires her:
". . .I feel like we've gotten pretty far away from that kind of regard and I guess at the core of my painting happy cats and dogs and whatnots is the hope of inspiring people to care and to take care and also to sort of send a little flag up to the people who get it (hey now!)."
