Me, after working on a 60x42 inch painting for 11 straight hours.


Sara Larner currently lives in New York City, where she writes, paints, and attended Barnard College of Columbia University, majoring in English with a double Concentration in Creative Writing and Film and a Minor in Ancient Studies. However, she will shortly be moving to Los Angeles to attend the University of California School of the Cinematic Arts, earning an MFA in Screenwriting for Film and Television. She founded the Aloft Harlem Art Gallery in New York City, a not-for-profit gallery aimed at promoting local emerging talent in partnership with Aloft Hotels. Currently she curates long distance, reviewing submissions online and flying out to supervise the organization and opening night of biannual installations. Her own painting is done mostly to commission. Having recently finished her fourth novel (the first for which she's seeking publication), her second feature length screenplay, and her third original tv pilot, she is now hard at work on her first animated feature script, as well as a webcomic collaboration with the inimitable Brandy McCluskey that will be released in August of 2018. Sara has also been delightedly hovering around the edges of her first feature script, which is currently in development.

Sara spends her free time filling painting commissions, dancing, and—whenever there is a breath of time—reading. (Okay, often reading when there is no time and she should really be doing Actual Work.)

Commission your own custom oil painting, or if you want some art but are looking to spend less, check out her patreon for discounts and raffles! Or just to show your support, if you like. ^_^

Don't forget to find her on instagram, twitter, and facebook, and go to her tumblr to see all the rest of her paintings!
