About The Artist
Neurotically private about her personal life, Saska chooses
to work under a pseudonym to protect her freedom of expression.
The name she chose, Saska Kahrar, has layers of meaning,

She lives and paints in an ordinary-if-somewhat-ill-kept
house in suburban North Texas. She currently shares living
quarters with a husband, a watermelon-in-a-cat-suit, a rather
yappy dog, an assortment of free-range geckos, stray squirrels,
possums and the occasional raccoon.
Saska studied visual art on and off throughout her life,
mostly teaching herself. In 2002, she picked up her brushes
while looking for an outlet for frustration. She found more
than an outlet -- she found a distinctive technique and
style. Her current work reflects her ongoing obsessions
with the pains and passions that drive human nature, as
well as private turmoil in her own world.
