Sarah Dillion grew up in Yakima, WA. After receiving her BA in studio art from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA, she went on to take a position as the Public Programs Coordinator at Tacoma Art Museum. She is inspired by artists such as Gwen Knight and Nathan Oliveira, whom she has had the privilege of meeting and working with during their exhibitions. Dillion left the museum to study under painters John Walker, Richard Ryan and printmaker Deborah Cornell at Boston University, where she received her MFA in painting. During her time in Boston, she acquired a strong curatorial base through graduate coursework taken in conjunction with the Museum of Fine Arts Contemporary Art Department and the MET Graduate Art Administration Program. She moved to Seattle in 2006 and took a position as Gallery Director for Gallery 110. Dillion has taught as adjunct faculty at several Northwest institutions and built her studio practice in Pioneer Square. Currently, she maintains her Pioneer Square studio practice and teaches art as a full-time tenured faculty member at Green River College in Auburn, WA.
