Sarah Tilton (b. 1993) is an abstract painter living and working in Baltimore, MD. She is best known for her bold and expressive large-scale paintings. Drawing inspiration from her background as a classically trained musician, Sarah works improvisationally to create paintings that represent feelings without names. “I always think that the best music sort of envelopes you and causes you to feel very specific emotions that you usually can’t name, and that’s what I’m trying to do with my paintings.” -Tilton
Since graduating from Towson University in 2017, her work has been featured in the NextGen 4.0 Exhibition at VisArt, juried by artists Tim Doud and Cathy C. Cook, in the UNDER 500 at Maryland Art Place, and has been added to private and corporate collections across the country.
