Sarah McRae Morton’s paintings are steeped in stories. Stories drawn from her familial heritage, folklore, historic curiosities, artistic anecdotes, all woven beautifully by McRae Morton’s deft hand and skill with a paintbrush. Her often surreal oil paintings blend reality with mystery and fantasy, and reveal her mastery of her medium. Figures appear blurred as if in motion without losing any integrity of form or clarity. Subjects are pulled from centuries past, or are transported to landscapes and interiors that represent another era. McRae Morton’s skill as a painter is breathtaking, and her ability to convey narrative and emotion allow viewers to be swept up in the moments she shares.

McRae Morton received a Certificate from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, PA, as well as studying at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Skowhegan, ME. In addition she studied with the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property in partnership with the Vatican Museum Laboratory through The Trinity College, Rome, Italy. Her work has been shown at Galleries across the United States, as well as in Germany, and can be found in dozens of private collections. McRae Morton has been an Artist in Residence at Monson Arts Residency, Monson, ME, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Amherst, VA, and Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT among others.
