Sarah Hagy Volker grew up in North Carolina and Maryland. She graduated from The Fashion Institute of Technology, in New York City, with a degree in Illustration and Advertising Design. Continuing her education she received a degree in Art Therapy from Empire State College in Saratoga Springs, NY. She studied sculpture at the Atlanta College of Art through out the 1990’s.
Volker moved to Richmond Hill, GA from Atlanta where she had lived with her husband and two sons. While in Atlanta she worked in the fields of advertising, the proprietary school industry, banking, and the wholesale art industry. In 2002 she and her husband decided to slow down and retire. The change in life style has allowed Volker to concentrate on developing her painting and sculpture skills and teach.
Her work is very organic in nature. Deep, rich colors grace the canvas. Volker works in oils, color pencil, acrylics, pen & ink, wire, marble, and limestone.
