Sara Morales is a New York City born Puerto Rican artist. Her life experiences from her time in El Barrio, the Bronx, and La Isla del Encanto has shaped much of her work. Her life-long love affair with art began at a very early age; winning an art scholarship while still in grade school.
She would later graduate from the High School of Art & Design. She expanded her palate with additional art training at Hostos Community College, the 92nd Street Y, and the Bronx River Art Center.
In 2009, Sara and Vivian joined forces and founded Saviana Arts, where they put to canvass the culture of their beloved Puerto Rican and Nuyorican heritage. Much of their work chronicles the humanity of their families’ traditions. They continue to apply their medium as their respective journeys into their cultural selves take them to different times, places and experiences.
Sara Morales is a member of The Puerto Rican Institute for the Development of the Arts (PRIDA).
