The New York Optimist
Sara Conca is a self taught New York based artist of
French and Native American heritage who grew up in Southern Florida. Sara credits her
family's penchant for relocating several times during her childhood with inspiring her
appreciation for changing environments and settings. By the age of 17, Sara was living
and working in Paris, an experience, she says, that only reinforced her appreciation for
movement, energy and art.
Throughout the past 13 years in Manhattan, Sara has experimented with a wide variety of
art mediums and forms of expression, yet her painting and sculpture practices have
remained consistent, bringing her to a visual and skilled fluency with her mediums of
choice.

Sara's well regarded works have been sold to many private collectors and she has had a
number of solo and group exhibitions, including Le Bibloquet, The Soho D&H Gallery
Solo Shows and the Henry Gregg Gallery Compilation Show. Sara's upcoming showing at
Mansion in November will be one of the most exciting exhibitions of her well established
career. Her new pieces are anticipated to unveil aspects of the artist not previously seen,
yet consistent with her high standards of excellence.

ARTIST SARA CONCA'S
ABSTRACT COMPOSITIONS REFLECT BOTH HER ARTIST'S
EMOTION AND HER BEAUTY AS A SUCCESSFUL MODEL

At 5'11" with long brown hair and striking brown eyes, it's hard not
to notice her beauty. Sara Conca's looks come naturally, but lately,
it is her artistic talent that is getting the most recognition. An
experience model and self-taught artist, Conca's creativity is
unhindered. Without the constraints of classical training, her
artwork is one-of-a-kind and expresses her individuality and
inspiration.
Her passion for art started at an expressive outlet from her modeling
career. The Florida native broke into modeling at her young age of
14 winning a regional competition in South Florida. Her local
success led to a huge transition and at 17 Conca moved to Paris on
her own to pursue a full modeling career. "It was a total fairy tale.
When I went to France I did well and had my own place in what
was still a foreign country to me," she recounts.

She returned to the United States a few years later and continued
modeling in Miami before moving to New York City. The big city
offered a lot of work, but not all Conca's modeling jobs were in
front of the camera; she landed a long-term gig as a fit model for
Ralph Lauren which led to other opportunities.
After a while, Conca became frustrated with modeling, "You have
people poking at you and touching you all day, pulling on your hair.
It just left me where I needed to express myself," she says. As a
result she started to experiment with art which she discovered.
