One of our favorite destination in the U.S. is Vermont so it is fitting that we feature one of their most prominent printmaker, Sabra Field. She was named “an Extraordinary Vermonter” by Governor Madeleine Kunin in 1990 and a “Vermont Living Treasure” by the Shelburne Craft School a decade later. We love her portrayals of the Vermont fields particularly her snow and evening landscapes. On Edgewater Gallery she says this about her career:
“Why did on earth I become a professional artist? No one said I couldn’t and I was too naive to realize the But mostly I wanted to spend all my time making images and I was willing to take the risk. I felt, in a sense, that I had no choice. I couldn’t be happy otherwise.”
“The career highs that sustain me are not glamorous by the standards of the wider world but they confirm that I made the right decision. I’ve reached the time of life artists dream of: a few commissions, sales of reproduction rights, a lot of time to think and dream and invent new images while I still have the strength and energy to make them come true. I hope you will find an image that speaks to you, that you will commit to it and live with it so that we may share that special relationship between artist and collector: I make it but you SEE it!”
