Gateway to the Arts

December and January

Sarah Dugger


Artists Statement and Bio

Sarah Dugger has 25 years experience in the commercial textiles and fine art fields. After graduating from Bowling Green State University in 1997 with a BFA in Surface Design she started working in NYC and San Francisco designing textiles for Nicole Miller, Victoria’s Secret and Pottery Barn. She was a part of the Salami Factory co-op in Fairfax, California which inspired her to pursue fine art painting. At present she is working across three disciplines; fine art painting, large scale murals and hand printing textile yardage. She is married to the love of her life, Howie Dugger, and together they have three children; Maisie, Tegan and Sidney.

The physical act of making art has always been my main motivator. I love what it feels like in my body to draw, paint and print. As a fine artist I am interested in color and the application of a specific set of marks to create a stylized version of a realistic subject. As a textile designer I am challenged to maintain my personal style while working within the tight limitations of the printing process. As a muralist I am able to visualize and execute my artwork at a large scale and consider how public art creates a sense of place. I cycle through these three disciplines based on the time of year; making murals in the warm Ohio weather, printing textiles in the winter and fine art painting year round and make discoveries about my artistic voice as I shift between mediums..
