Artist, Sabra L. Crockett, will discuss her work on the New Cut Road Mural Project.
Sabra L. Crockett has been a professional working artist for over 20 years. Her career started when she was fresh out of college working as a scenic artist for a LORT theater in Rochester, New York. After one season at GeVa Theater in Rochester, New York, Sabra began working at Alabama Shakespeare Festival in Montgomery, Alabama as a scenic artist where she learned trompe l’oeil, faux bois, faux marbre, and other decorative painting techniques. Soon this led to her getting mural and faux finishing jobs out of the theater. Faced with the decision of continuing her side projects when she was not working at the theater, and raising a newborn, she decided to leave the theater, and start her own business, Sabra Lynne Decorative Painting, LLC. After her son’s first birthday, she and her husband decided to move to Louisville, Kentucky to be closer to family. In Louisville, Sabra was able to continue her business rather successfully, and also work as a seasonal scenic artist for Actors Theater, and Stage One Family Theater. Some other notable employers Sabra has worked with are The Louisville Zoo, Le Moo, Frazier Historical Museum, Jefferson Development Group, and many private patrons in the Louisville area and around the country. She was the lead artist for the 174 foot long mural along Bardstown Road, and the I 264 Underpass in the Bon Air Neighborhood in Louisville, KY. She has also collaborated with artist, Linda Erzinger, on other public art projects. Currently, Sabra is focusing on her fine art career. She receives commissions regularly and is working on a couple of series of paintings about shifting people’s awareness about nature. In April 2017 Sabra exhibited in New York City with a prestigious group of artists from all over the world, called Salon. In 2018 she has been invited to exhibit in Leeuwarden, Holland.
