Virginia-based artist Sarah Boyts Yoder creates multi-layered mixed-media works with a diverse range of materials. A love of color, collage, and illustration drives her search for balance between sophistication and simplicity. She finds inspiration high and low--from Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art to the books she reads with her two young children. Boyts received a fellowship in painting from the Virginia Museum of Fine Art and has exhibited widely in group and solo shows. She was recently named one of "12 Southern Artists to Buy Now" in magazine.
