One of 15 siblings, Artist Sabreee is a native South Carolinian from the small farm town of Lake City. Though her youth was mostly spent working on her family’s 300-acre farm, Sabreee always knew she had to be an artist.
“I knew from day one I was an artist. It was inside me from the time I knew who I was,” she said.
Unlike many farming families, Sabreee’s parents, along with her brothers and sisters, all supported her passion for art. They encouraged her to be what she wanted to be, but that didn’t get her out of all the daily chores. Her parents were loyal sharecroppers who taught their children the value of hard work, which is certainly what contributed to her strong craving for education and the desire for another way of life.
