6/5 Artist of the Week: Sarah Shearer

The Arts & Business Council of Greater Nashville, Blackbird Media, and F&M Bank have teamed up to present the Artist of the Week on The Nashville Sign. This week, 2018 Periscope alum Sarah Shearer is featured!
Sarah Shearer received a BFA in painting from Belhaven College in 1995 and relocated to Nashville in 2000 where she founded Painted Paw Studio. Working primarily as a painter, Shearer began incorporating her passion for animals into her creative business when she saw the joyful impact this work had. As a fur mom of two handsome rescue pit mixes and one unimpressed cat, Shearer quickly connects with people on the meaningful bond we share with our fur babies. In addition to creating pet-centric art, Sarah also gives back to pets in need. Puppy UpCrossroads and Agape are among the animal welfare non-profits she supports by donating a percentage of sales or sponsorship backing at special events.
