Sara McDonald
Contemporary Canadian Artist

Sara McDonald

A lifelong resident of BC,  I moved to the Okanagan in 1991. After working in the field of kitchen design for several years, I attended art school and graduated with a BFA in 2000. For several years, I pursued my studio work and exhibited in both public and private galleries, and taught art at the Kelowna Art Gallery.In 2003, I started a disability arts group ("Cool Arts") - this led me back to school for my MA and I graduated from UBC Okanagan in 2012; the theme of my thesis concerned artists who live with developmental disabilities and their experience and place in the contemporary art world.

I have four fabulous adult children who are all creative people.

 Currently I am working in administration at the University of British Columbia Okanagan in Kelowna.
