Sarah Heinemann was named after a shrimp boat in her birthplace of Beaufort, South Carolina.  Shaped by a nomadic childhood and extensive world travels, Sarah is currently settled in Los Angeles, California. She received her BFA in Fine Art from Adelphi University in 2012, concentrating in printmaking and installation. Her work discusses the beauty of the cyclical nature of life, and the exploration of transience through found images and living materials.

During her undergraduate studies at Adelphi, Sarah was awarded the A. Conger Goodyear Award for Excellence in Fine Arts. She has been active with Arthouse Coop's 'The Sketchbook Project', submitting sketchbooks included in the 2011-2013 annual, traveling exhibitions, as well as the juried Summer Tour:2013 traveling exhibition. Sarah was interviewed on the Japanese television program 'El Mundo' as the representative contributing artist for The Sketchbook Project. Her work is also published in The Sketchbook Project Journal as a representative of New York state. She has participated in a number of group shows through Adelphi University, including Ephemeral (2013).
