Who is SaraDevil? Who for that
matter who is Sara Davila?
This online gallery was concived
sometime in 1998 when I first began sketching. Any of the work
here dated 1998 is a representation of that first dabbling in art
for myself rather than dictated by someone else, i.e school,
SaraDevil, or Sara Davila, is a hard
working, female artist, who enjoys drawing, painting and
sketching fine art female nudes more than anything else in the
world. I am a self representing artist, and trying to make a
serious go at it.
I've always been a creative
person. I enjoyed writing poetry, and stories, and even won a few
awards way back when. When I got to Shimer College I fed my soul
mostly with the piano that I had twenty-four hour access too.
This is a good thing, as there is a part of me that plays the
piano that really shouldn't be witnessed by anyone else. It's a
thing that takes over and becomes to raw and emotional, all
consuming. I loose myself in chords and melodies and the
vibration of the piano under my hands. There are occasions when
I've played until my fingers bled, and only when I stopped and
noticed the red splotches on the white keys would I realize what
was happening. I still like to play that way, but without a
private piano I've had to cut back.
I am also
a flutist, and truly, have been playing that longer, but I
learned improvisation on the piano. Freeing myself through music,
and so I feel more attached to it then my flute.
I grew up in the backwaters of
America, and moved to Chicago to go to school in a small private
liberal arts college known as Shimer. Anyone who has an interest in what
learning really is should consider Shimer. It was there I learned
to draw, sitting in my apartment at night after classes. Shimer
is so difficult that one rarely has time for anything but
studying, and when students finally do get around to partying it
is with just as much effort. I love Shimer, and my life without
would be unthinkable.
From there, I've wound around and
around, until finally after much debate I've decided to take a
trip to South Korea to teach, since I enjoy teaching as a form of
work more than anything else. Currently you will probably find me
with a sketchbook, afterhours, at some mountain or remote spot,
sketching people and trees. When I have a collection I'll post
them in the gallery.
