Recent alumna Sarah Fields (BA 2020, studio art with a focus on digital media) recently contacted the department of art and art history to let us know what’s been going on in her life since she graduated. Fields wrote, “I work as a marketing assistant for Cheree Berry Paper & Design in St. Louis, a woman-owned and -led small business. We specialize in graphic design for events, such as weddings, and work on corporate and nonprofit branding and event collateral, digital media and websites, and we offer a retail line.”
Fields also sent some of her memories of life around Woods Quad, including several UA art and art history professors who were “instrumental in my journey through the college experience. They each shaped me and challenged me to look at my own work in different ways and helped me grow not only in the technicalities of their individual fields but also in the overall experience of creating and looking at art.” Fields majored in studio art, with an emphasis on digital media; she also minored in advertising and studied art history. In fact, she won the UA College of Arts and Sciences’ 2019 Asian Studies Essay Award for her research on an Italian Jesuit court painter during the Qing dynasty in China.
