Hello and welcome to my page, I am a Visual Artist, Mixed/Multi Media
Sarah Ronald is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist living on the west coast of Canada in the ancestral and unceded territory of the kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem First Nation).
Ronald's diverse upbringing in the rural Okanagan shaped her future as an ecologically concerned artist, whose work centres around surveying human behaviour and our impacts on wildlife and the natural world.
Sarah often finds inspiration for her art and engagement projects while working with conservation organizations, evaluating wildlife statistics, and researching challenges around habitat loss and climate change.
Her work can be found in private collections, temporary public presentations, wildlife conservation campaigns, and exhibitions in Canada and abroad.

Samples of my work
My artwork explores themes around human behaviour and preferences when it comes to wildlife, both in the real world and through our representations of them.
Behind my artwork is the desire to create a shared neutral space in which humans identify as being one with all living forms, not merely observer of the natural world.
In this shared neutral space, no barriers inhibit communication, and all living forms hold equal ecological significance.
In this space we come to understand that our physical human bodies do not belong to us, we come to know that we are temporary extensions of the living land, no different from the coyote, bear, raccoon or raven.
