Sara Stenlund grew up in the south of Sweden among a family of artists. At the age of 18 she got accepted to The Florence Academy of Art(FAA). A school that has earned its international reputation for offering the highest level of training in classical sculpture and painting through disciplined studies of nature and the work of old masters. During her three years at the Academy’s sculpture and drawing program, Sara received several grants and scholarships. During her forth year she was asked to teach figure drawing to the Academy’s sculpture students along side with specializing studies in Oil Painting. The last two years her work has been exhibited in galleries in Charleston, South Carolina, USA, Capetown, South Africa and in several different locations in Italy and Sweden. Sara is currently living in Sweden, Malmö, where she has her studio at the artist cooperative Circulations Centralen.
