Transcending Traditions - Sarah Sockbeson
Sarah was born in 1983 and spent her early years in Brooklin, Maine. Her great grandmother made baskets on Indian Island. In 2004 Sarah apprenticed with Jennifer Neptune as part of the Maine Arts Commission Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program.
Sarah’s work features a distinctive color palette, detailed curlwork and hand painted cover medallions on birchbark. The paintings that she features in her baskets draw on her background in drawing, painting, printmaking and photography. Her baskets often use antler handles.
