For my work I try to complete paintings in one go- I like the sense of immediacy one can get in one session in the studio,” Sara MacCulloch.
MacCulloch received her MFA in 2019 and her BFA in 1992, both from NSCAD University (the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design).

She credits him as the single most impactful influence, who enabled her to gain the necessary confidence and belief in her own abilities, and to commit herself to the unforgiving tasks of being a rigorous painter. MacCulloch has exhibited with Studio 21 Fine Art since 1996, and has also shown extensively in Toronto and New York.
