Sarah Elyse Granetz – Q1 Art Competition – Artist Portfolio Magazine
“When I could no longer recognize myself, I knew I had to reclaim what was mine. With color and canvas, I abstracted what I had become into prints, impressions of this person I did not know, until I began to feel like myself again. By acknowledging the wound, I could finally let it heal.”
Sarah Elyse Granetz lives and works in New York, New York.
She received her B.A. in Fine Arts from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. During this time, Sarah spent a semester in Paris, France. What began as a “self portrait” assignment has transformed into My Body Is Not For Sale, a meditative series on the female form through literal impressions of the artist’s actual body.
Since then she has exhibited in New York City, Paris and Art Basel Miami. She has been featured in British Vogue and House & Garden magazine.
