Sarah Gill, artist/owner, is a graduate of East Carolina University. Sarah has a Bachelors of Fine Arts with an emphasis in Wood Design. She has also attended a number of classes offered through Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, Tennessee which include wood turning, wood carving and sculpture, and furniture making. After graduating college, Sarah worked with a custom furniture business on the Outer Banks of North Carolina for a little over a year before branching out into her own business, Funktional Art. Her first commissioned murals were created in 2004 when the State of North Carolina hired Funktional Art to build three 7'x 3.5' murals that depicted native species to the region for the North Carolina Wildlife Educational Center located next to the Whalehead Club in Corolla, NC. Since then, Funktional Art has collaborated with Bayliss Boatworks out of Wanchese, NC to create custom murals featured in custom sportfishing yachts such as the "Uno Mas".
