Sara Muender is a commercial artist specializing in graphic design and photography. She and her husband Thomas Folsom divide their time between the cranberry bogs of northern Wisconsin and the eastern Caribbean islands of St. Martin and Saba. In the late 1980's Sara began developing her own unique style of painting based on pen and ink sketches using the contour or blind drawing method and water media. More recent work is in the form of monotypes, a hand-pulled print-making method using oil-based inks on paper and a printing press.
Subject matter and style vary from the whimsical animals, cottages and landscapes of the Caribbean to the more impressionistic flora and fauna of the North Woods. Most work is available in the form of original paintings & monotypes, giclée prints, limited-edition prints & cards. Commissioned works may be accepted at the artist's discretion.
In the summer of 2001 after years of exhibiting her work in a variety of local galleries and co-ops, Sara opened her own commercial gallery in the resort community of Boulder Junction, Wisconsin. Moondeer & Friends Gallery is a combination of contemporary fine art and craft, European, Oriental and American antiques and artifacts, small gift items, books, cards, Putumayo World Music CD's, and professional custom framing. Here Sara is finally able to represent not only herself but over 150 other regional artists and associates in a unique and eclectic fashion. Please stop for a visit the next time you're in the North Woods.
