Narrative Artist

Since 2006, Sarah Tenney has been showing artwork in both individual and collective shows around Denver. Pieces by Sarah Tenney can be found in collections across North America and Australia. Explore the Sarah Tenney Art site in order to view works, read behind-the-scenes musings, and find out when the next exhibition is happening.



Sarah Tenney happily illustrated stories through her elementary years in New Jersey, delved predictably into painfully sentimental poetry in adolescence, discovered a passion for art as a teen in Colorado, self-published zines in multiple colleges, and painted like mad through her 20’s and up to the present.

In addition to being a professional artist, Sarah has the pleasure of working in the audiobook industry, publishing for the Library of Congress’ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped for 10 years.  Sarah enjoys travel by train, leisurely bike rides, and game nights.  She lives in Denver with her husband and their two precocious boys and personable cats.
