Sarah Woodie is originally from Charlotte but has lived in the Avery/ Watauga area since 1997. She received a BA in Art History and Studio Art from Appalachian State University in 2002 and later became licensed in art education in 2008. Since 2009 she has worked at Williams Academy (formerly Crossnore Academy) where she teaches art, digital media, and yearbook. Sarah lives in Linville Falls with her husband Sam, 2 dogs, and a cat. She also enjoys snowboarding, cooking, and traveling.
Sarah is a natural light photographer who uses the landscapes of rural Northwestern North Carolina as her inspiration for her fine art photography as well as her portrait work. She is inspired by the beauty, colors, and textures all around her. Through her photos, she hopes to evoke appreciation and wonder for the little things most would never notice in their busy lives. Reflections, shadows, and beautiful light beg to be captured and to be seen from a new perspective.
