Sara Butcher Fairy Art
The Fairy Gathering brings you the fabulous watercolor fairy art of Sara Butcher!
I have always seen magical and wondrous things around me. Faeries, mermaids, and elves came naturally, and when it was time to make an adult decision to keep the fairytales or leave them, I only advanced further into the realm of imagination. I attended the Minneapolis College of Art & Design in 2000 to pursue the talents God provided me. In 2003 I traveled abroad to Scotland to study at the Glasgow School of Art. There I wandered the Highlands, searched for the roots in fairytales, and my heritage. When I returned home and graduated in 2004, the road became clearer, and my work had a purpose.
My work displays the voyage from discovery of self in folklore to the fantastical grace of holy faith. The importance of strength, desire, hope, love, and “to seek something more than human”, radiates from the paintings. It is my inner drive and purpose to inspire others, of old and young, to view life from a different angle, one full of light and peace. I teach children art at the Des Moines Art Center and enjoy my days with my husband and two cats.
