Sari Shryack is an Austin-based painter focused on color and light in the rapidly changing neighborhoods of her city. Her work is influenced by 20th century American landscape art. By using colorful settings with inconspicuous identities as her inspiration, Sari seeks to encourage a recalibration of the value of place.
Sari’s career began in earnest at the beginning of 2016 when she challenged herself to create one painting a day. That project eventually morphed into a deliberate pursuit of her current landscape work. Several of her paintings can currently be found at galleries around Austin. She is trained in acrylics and earned her BA in Fine Arts from Drury University in 2014. Sari is also a mom to a one-year-old and finds time to be an artist in between naps and frequent walks around Town Lake.
