Sabrina B. Fadial


My work celebrates feminine and natural Beauty while bearing witness to its commodification and marginalization. Subject, material, and maker are all socially marginalized. My work evokes feminine strength as Beauty. I create grace, fluidity, fragility, and vulnerability through uneasy juxtapositions. I poeticize the commonplace. 

Nature is my muse. My inspiration comes from personal life experience. The work of art is a byproduct of the creative process, which is life itself. I am a collector of seedpods, corks and rusty bits. My material choice stems from eclecticism and irony. Biomorphic forms evoke a synthesis between creative thought and the senses.

My practice is one of experimentation. With experimentation comes repetition, working in multiples, and series. Through play and improvisation, I create the ambiguous coexistence of subtlety and surprise. 

Through teaching, mentoring, and art making in my community, I bring art to people and people to art. In the fall, I will open Stevens Branch Studios, a space for creative incubation and education.
