Gockley Fine Art & Design

Sarah Gockley...

I am Sarah.  I have been teaching high school art for 17 years.  I enjoy facilitating the creative process for high schoolers and find their artistic growth and enthusiasm very rewarding.  In addition to teaching I love to spend time decorating my home.  I enjoy style and fashion and have always been a fan of all types of music.  I also enjoy the quiet, I love nature and the outdoors.  I love animals and spend alot of time with my two dogs.  I like tangible things and am a bit overwhelmed with the speed in which technology is taking over.  I am edgy, yet reserved.  I love to paint, draw, sculpt, manipulate materials. I love portraiture and figurative art, but will experiment with everything. My art influences are many and everchanging, but lately are John Singer Sargent, Jenny Saville, Phil Frost, Odd Nerdrum, and Alice Neel.   

Chris Gockley...

Forty nine years old and getting better.

I've got a lot to learn and don't feel like quitting now.  I'm truly grateful for so much and yet I'm hardly aware of the extent to which I should be grateful. 

I'm gonna keep showing up for my life and see what happens next.
