Growing up, Sarah Jane Keiser explored a life outdoors. The unique landscape where Ishewas raised – the stark shift from glacial flattened land to moraine hills and valleys – filled her outdoor escapades, and in turn, her imagination. As a child, Keiser would lay in the grass and watch adventures of ants, then roll on her back and see rabbits and whales in the clouds. She would peer over a boat into a deep lake, and see a marvelous blue-green-black punctuated by the silver of a bluegill fish. Later, Keisers medical career sophisticated my observational skills, yet she continued to seek respite outside. Her intent with oil painting is to encourage curiosity, and inspire joy and appreciation for our natural world.

About the Artist
Sarah Jane Keiser
Sarah Jane Keiser grew up in southeastern Wisconsin. Art and nature were central to her upbringing – she grew up in a family of skilled woodcarvers and outdoorsmen. After high school, she drifted away from her study of arts and pursued the sciences, graduating University of Wisconsin Madison with degrees in zoology and psychology. She then moved to the east coast for a career in medicine.
After a personal tragedy, Sarah returned to painting. She currently splits her time between Charleston, South Carolina and Ellison Bay in Door County, Wisconsin. Nature is central to her themes, and she is inspired by the scenes where she lives. She primarily works with oil paint, and prefers still life and plein air. She also enjoys doing pet portrait commissions.
