Conversations with Sara Brinson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sara Brinson.

Hi Sara, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers.
I have always been creative, as my true nature, though I believe we all are. Taking myself seriously as an artist began when I moved to Denver. The community and exposure was beautiful gift that I will always be thankful for.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The creative journey certainly has stretches of being smooth. Of course, there are bumps and curves along the way. Perhaps that’s the thrill of it all. I find that time management & believing in myself when the going gets rough are my biggest struggles.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
My arch-shaped fiber earrings are likely what people know me for best, though (professionally) I started by making wall hangings. It was a creative passion I was eager to share with the world. While I was working on wall hangings, I made a pair of earrings for myself to wear & people loved them very much. So many people were asking for them, I paused on interior designs & let the jewelry ride.

Fashion has always been a huge part of my soul & how I express myself. The same goes for interior design. Ya know, art is truly a way of life and when I started creating professionally, It felt natural to embody art as a way of living. Everything is art. Everything we do, say, create.. the way we live… it’s all art. As far as wall hangings go, my mom always worked with different yarns and fibers while I was growing up. She even had sheep! It has always felt like second nature playing around with different materials to create something lovely.

The textures feel so nice in my hands & between my fingers. They hold a tender place in my heart. I also really love supporting other artists. They keep me inspired and it feels good to share. My style is what separates my work from others. I use the word style in every sense of the word. I prefer to learn/practice things “properly” and then let the vision lead the way. Sometimes things come to me quite clearly. That’s when I know I’m onto something really good.

I am most proud of my ability to try new things. Another skill set I began to embrace in Colorado. We’ve only got this short time here on earth. If it sparks something in us, I believe that it’s for a reason. I have always loved to sing. Music has been something I’ve been exploring a lot in recent days. I’m excited to see where that leads.

We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on luck and what role, if any, you feel it’s played for you.
Luck….. funny you ask! I do believe when I am in a good flow, balanced, harmonized & vibrating from a place of optimism… things align in an effortlessly beautiful way. Connections & opportunity specifically. Even my energy levels. One could call that luck… Or even my openness to noticing it.

When I am holding on too long, too tight, or forcing something to work… things seem to be more challenging. As though they are falling apart. Which one could consider bad luck? On the contrary, when things feel desperate a bit of good luck seems like a miracle. When something feels like a taste of bad luck… it could be there to create balance. One could also say that things are written in the stars.

Perhaps it doesn’t matter how we get there & luck is what determines the route we take.
