Sara-Lou Klein was born in Golden, Colorado and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Metropolitan State University of Denver. She has exhibited her art for over 30 years, and is in numerous collections including the Denver Art Museum, which has one of her tiny pieces–no larger than 2”x3”–included in their permanent collection.
Klein’s art combines people (sometimes), with a variety of animals; especially birds, birds, and more birds! She volunteered with the Birds of Prey Foundation (an organization dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of injured and orphaned raptors) and the enchanting birds filled her heart with wonder and as a result, their charming mannerisms often feature prominently in her artwork. She enjoys using the media of colored pencils, acrylic paint, and collage material including sewn fabric–on wood panels, canvas, or paper.
When Sara-Lou is not making art in her studio in Aurora, Colorado, she loves spending time with her husband, family, friends, practicing yoga, hiking, stand-up paddleboarding, reading, or visiting art museums or galleries. Whatever she does she is grateful for the little things in life and aims to brighten your day with her creations.
