Biography

Sarah Sense (b. 1980) lives and works in California. Sense has traveled extensively
through the Americas, Europe, United Kingdom and Southeast Asia. Her landscape
photography is an essential part of her travel and visual art practice. Sense’s weaving
practice began in New York while a master’s student at Parson New School for Design
(2003-2005). While director and curator of the American Indian Community House
Gallery, New York, Sense catalogued the gallery’s thirty-year history, inspiring her
search for Indigenous art internationally. Her world travels were charged with archive
research, photo-weaving project that expanded to community programming,
international Indigenous artist interviews and the book, Weaving the Americas. She is
currently a visiting fellow at the British Library, London.
