Sarah Haskell

Born and raised in New England, Sarah received a BFA in Textile Design from RISD and a Masters of Art and Healing from Wisdom University. A 2021 Fellow for the Maine Arts Commission, Sarah has exhibited in regional and national shows. Residencies include Monhegan Island, ME; Hewnoaks, Lovell, ME; Vermont Studio Center; Acadia National Park, ME, Hambidge Center, Rabun, GA. Community art projects include: "Each One: The Button Project, a 9/11 Memorial" (2002), “Woven Voices, Messages from the Heart” (2007-12) a global peace project and “Well Used, Well Loved” (2015-17) exploring age, beauty, attachment and impermanence.

While my training is in traditional textile techniques, my work is more poetic than practical; finding beauty in the subtle variations of hand-dyed and woven threads. My passion for community art grows from a desire to build community, raise self-esteem and shine a light on the individual and the collective, the unique and the universal. Within the repetitive methods inherent to textiles, I find a quiet space of engagement - a place to illustrate universal stories of love, loss and longing, the heart ache of the ephemeral, the tender beauty of the natural world and the astonishing gift of being human.
