This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Houghton, MI on July 13, 1861, the daughter of famed pharmacist Hervey Parke. Sarah grew up in Detroit and studied art in NYC in 1880. When her family bought a ranch in El Cajon Valley near San Diego in 1893, she came with them. After many visits to the Monterey Peninsula, she settled there in 1906 into a studio-home in Pacific Grove. Inspired by the beauty around her, she painted adobes, missions, seascapes, the cypress trees along the coast, and other local scenery. Many of her paintings were reproduced on post cards. A spinster, she died in the Palo Alto (CA) Hospital on Jan. 23, 1937. Exh: Mark Hopkins Inst., 1897-98; Del Monte Art Gallery (Monterey), 1907; Berkeley FA League, 1924. In: Monterey Public Library (Carmel Mission).
