Sara Amorosino repurposes found, rescued and often personal materials to tell multidimensional stories of love, understanding, and belongingness. Her approach to Assemblage Art is layered, complex, and visually enticing while conveying relatable and universal messages. On the surface, these messages are straightforward. However, the magic of her approach hides in the subtle details, much like most important things in life.
Sara recently returned to art during a three-month leave from her career as a construction management executive with a Fortune 500 company. She found the process therapeutic and healing, rekindling a love that long ago inspired her as an Architecture student at Tulane University (BArch, MArch) in New Orleans. Heavily influenced by the artwork she experienced in New Orleans, Sara's artistic approach allows her to look at something old through a different lens and breathe new life into mostly discarded objects, infusing them with love for the environment, storytelling, and fresh artistic energy they bring to the world. She especially enjoys commissioned work, which allows her to take the personal aspect to an even deeper level.
“I often create a common thread or theme between items that otherwise seem unrelated. With these connections, I aim to trigger emotions, encourage deeper thought, and connect relatable and often overlooked details of everyday life to larger current events or issues.
For the past 28 years, Sara has led a storied career working as a Construction and Design Executive for powerhouse companies like Amazon, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, and Polo Ralph Lauren. In addition to Architecture, Sara has a Master of Real Estate (MRE) from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney, Australia. In 2008 she celebrated her love of both running and world travel by becoming one of roughly 70 women worldwide to finish marathons on seven continents. Originally from the suburbs of Boston, Sara lives in Ridgefield with her family.
