Get to Know the Austin Artist:
Sarala Amy Kasbe, emerging abstract artist, oil paint lover, ocean and movement finder.
Due to Covid-19, I lost my job in the tech industry in April 2020. This sudden change sent a shock wave through my world. I am taking this moment as an opportunity to focus on my art and settle into my studio on a more regular basis. With everything happening within the pandemic and other current events, it has been a heavy and slow-burn finding what sticks and what doesn’t when I paint. Some days I feel disconnected from my work. The ground beneath me is shifting and for the first time in my life, I am asking what is important to me based on goals and passions that I am prescribing entirely myself. I am deciding to change the way I live by abandoning the plan laid ahead of me by others and instead pivoting towards a road with no map, guided purely by my instinct and curiosity.
In the past two months following the loss of normalcy and predictability, I feel my conviction building as I continue to prioritize my art. I have been painting for two and a half years now and have been fortunate enough to sell some originals, to be a part of showcases and exhibits, and to have completed two residential commissions. As a POC artist, I am still finding my creative voice, however, and there is still so much for me to know and learn. I have a B.A. in Interpersonal Communication from Meredith College in Raleigh, NC, and I am fully self-taught in art. I believe the best way to learn is through trying and making mistakes without fear. Sometimes I get lost in it and become frustrated. But again, this is life and for me, paint is the constant that holds and sometimes molds me back together. During this period of questioning, a light within me has been resurrected through the process of creating.
