Sarah Baldeo-Almeida Mind Zonewww.ArtPal.com/mssarahbaldeo
Sarah Almeida is an emerging Toronto born artist with a BSc. Spec. Hon. in Neuroscience & Psychology. A child of the mid eighties she was born into that time where children were stuck halfway between the glam of the 90s and the free-wheeling 80s. A first generation Canadian her parents both hailed from the Caribbean, her background is a veritable mix of Irish, German, Spanish, French, Chinese and Indian blood.
Sarah prefers the simple mediums of canvas and acrylic paints. She experiments with themes of ethereal dreams, abstracts, and urban landscape interpretations. Her aim is to display a multicultural interpretation from a self-taught artist perspective. She has training in instrumental music and is a hobby photographer. By day she works as an Executive Manager of Business Development for an HR firm. The structure and logic of consulting give her a place of calm to develop her creative side. This paradoxical tendency has often been observed in her works.
Also a wife and mother - Sarah's academic background in neuroscience and psychology has a made great impact on her painting style. Incorporating geometric patterns and symmetry into the fantasy of imagery is a key line she continues to explore in her painting. Always drawn to paint as a medium of expression - during her university years she frequently found an escape from statistics and her thesis through the canvas. Becoming a mother reawakened this instinct to create.
