THE ARTIST…  Sara Payne-McFarland grew up as the quiet girl in the corner, singing to herself and drawing busty women, mermaids, unicorns and fairies. She caught her first paid gig painting calligraphy at age 12, then painting portraits for clients at 15.

She has won art contests, garnered many private and professional commissions for portraits, theater design & set painting, calligraphy services, and murals. Some of her clients have included The SLC YWCA Children’s Center, The Parade of Homes, The Griddle Restaurant and Dick Nourse (local celeb).

THE SINGER… She also has a passion for singing and performing.   She has participated in competitions, musicals, received a vocal scholarship, and sang in the band QstandsforQ with her multi-talented husband, Jason, from 2002 to 2010. They were featured in Salt Lake Magazine, SLUG magazine, and Park City TV, as well as festivals and various venues around Utah.  Currently, she sings with a darling group of lovely ladies, under the name, “Treblelicious”, as well as various random appearances around the Salt Lake valley.

FAMILY LIFE… Sara is now the (very busy) mother of four children; a boy and three beautiful girls. She loves playing make-up with the girls, and being creative with her son. When not snuggling with her children, (or painting) she is usually decorating her home with vintage frames, kitschy figurines and other oddities.

DREAMS… Currently, she’s enrolled as a student to earn her AAS in fashion design, as well as cultivating a continued career as an artist and singer.
