Sarah Haynes

American , 1988



Born in Alabama, but raised in the Bahamas and the Caribbean, Sarah Haynes had a colourful childhood. Her mother educated her aboard a boat built by her parents, and the sense of isolation that this created, contrasted by the stark beauty of her environment and the joys of the bohemian island life ultimately contributed to her development as an artist.

Upon moving to Charleston, Haynes attended the Charleston County School of the Arts. She furthermore studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art and earned a BA in Studio Art from the College of Charleston.

Haynes’ work has been part of several shows, including Portrait Slam at Eye Level Art and Redux Contemporary Art Center, The Dark Arts Ball at Eye Level Art, Student x Faculty and Girls Girls Girls at Redux, Young Contemporaries at Halsey Gallery, the Charleston City Gallery’s Charleston Contemporaries 2010: Influence show, Sneaker, ArtFields, and the 2016 Charleston Arts Festival. Haynes’ work was recently highlighted in the web series “Talent Freaks”.
