Sarah Bunjevac

Sarah Bunjevac was born in Welland, Ontario, to Serbian immigrant parents. She spent her formative years in Yugoslavia where she obtained a degree in Veterinary Medicine. After moving back to Canada she settled in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario in Algoma district. For those who are not familiar with the city, it is beautifully located in the geographic location of where the narrows of Lake Superior, Lake Huron and Michigan come together.

This area is a famous part of Canada. Its pristine nature has provided inspiration to the most famous Canadian Group of Seven impressionist painters.

Sarah comes from a very artistic family, and although her siblings graduated in fine arts, she didn’t let the lack of formal education prevent her from enhancing her creative skills. She spent countless hours taking private lessons and courses, learning art theory and practical techniques.

Sarah is an oil painter and her subjects are mostly still life and landscapes. The beauty of Algoma district provides ceaseless inspiration for her landscapes which are highly influenced by Canadian Impressionists. On the other hand, her still life paintings have a distinct style, a combination of realism and art deco.
