As a plein air painter, Sara Jane Reynolds carries her easel and paints into the marshes and islands of South Carolina’s low country. For Sara Jane, inspiration springs from the beauty and richness of the untamed landscape.

Growing up in Pasadena, California, Sara Jane’s parents helped to foster her love of art and the outdoors. Her father was a civil engineer/architect and her mother a musician, poet and painter. Every summer, her family spent time in Yosemite National Park hiking, climbing, and exploring the wilderness of the great Western range. The visual impact of the valleys and vistas impacted her greatly, and helped her relate to the core of artists and writers who journeyed there. “I developed a deep love of nature, self expression and a strong passion for our great country. On canvas I write love letters in gold and green,” says Sara Jane.

Blue Dragon Hydrangea is from a series called Flowers from my Garden.

Sara Jane enjoys gardening, and has created a large garden of roses and hydrangeas, as well as camellias, lilies and herbs around her island home. The climate in Charleston supports an amazing variety of colors and varieties that bloom from the middle of May through September, which provides endless inspiration for her artistic expression. “Our neighbors Sidi and Louise have a farm next to our property with 2000 or more of every variety and color of hydrangea – Lace-caps and mop-heads galore!”

Sara Jane is represented by Reinert Fine Art in Charleston, South Carolina.
