Sarah Blumenschein is a pastel artist living in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Although she earned a degree in Industrial Engineering in college, creating art has always been a passion.  Upon retiring from industry, she initially thought she wanted to paint landscapes, but eventually found herself more interested and excited about painting still lifes due to the variety of colors, shapes, textures, and reflective surfaces possible.
