Growing up in Brooklyn as a child all Sarah Baley desired was to be free. When asked about the main thing that drives her she simply replies “Freedom”. Absolute freedom doesn't exist but in the mind and soul she says. Sarah looks to discover how freedom translates around her in her everyday world and where it exists within limitations.

A quote that would describe her the most as an artist is "The absence of limitation is the enemy of art" by Orson Welles. She loves to see how people create their unique reality within other realities. How they are able to live and survive with so many mixed elements surrounding them. She is drawn to that in different ways. Whether it is sexuality, sub-culture or culture blending. Old world struggling or working symbiotically with new merging in unique ways to give birth to yet another world. She is interested in realities intermingling. That is what impresses her most about living in New York City.
It is the perfect fusion of all elements coexisting and freedom of expression at its best.

"If you stay in the city and take the time to look long and hard, there are a million little boxes that you can open, like portals you take to a new world. Inviting you somewhere to see something you have never seen. If you are curious just open a door. It is expansive reality and we participate in, creating and changing it simply by entering. Some boxes left for decades waiting for the story to be told. This is treasure to me. I love to explore. You can sink in limitation and be confined or use limitation to set you free. My camera is my passport".

Sarah now resides in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
