Sara-Sati is a self-taught portrait artist from Brampton, whose lifelong goal is to master the art of hyper-realism. Her style has been evolving from realism to experimental sketch-like portraits that explore colour and texture, and aim to capture the essence of her subject. She is currently enrolled in Sheridan College for Visual and Creative Arts.
"I taught myself how to draw portraits a few weeks after my first surgery correcting a chest condition I was born with. I started drawing faces from magazines to learn and practice this new art and pass my time. I did a little doodle almost every single day during my recovery, and was delighted every time I drew to see what putting the pencil to paper revealed. With each drawing I was getting closer and closer to capturing likeness and sharpening my observational skills. Details and realism became an obsession of mine — I wanted to make my drawings look so real that you feel like you could reach out and touch them. Five years later and I think I’m on my way to getting there."
