Model: Sarah Leigh Davis
Multiple Disabilities

Sarah Davis is a 28-year-old artist who is able to capture beauty from within and bring it to life through her drawings and paintings. When she was two-years-old, Sarah and her family were in a propane explosion. Sarah had been thrown, knocked unconscious, and buried in the debris. It took firefighters two hours to find her, and, as a result of the accident, Sarah suffers from organic brain damage. She also received burns to her face, hands, legs, feet, and suffered a severely broken leg. Over the years, Sarah has had 16 surgeries, but has always maintained a positive attitude.

Sarah loves horses and attends a therapeutic horse-riding program weekly. She has ridden horses since she was 5 years old and enjoys drawing and painting horses as well. Sarah has been inspired by art her entire life and has a strong passion for what she creates. She stated, “When people see my art, I want them to love it, for them to be happy and amazed by it, and for them to always enjoy it with a kind and loving heart.” Sarah says that the world around her makes her feel beautiful and that being a part of the Bold Beauty Project is such a wonderful opportunity for her to share her love and beauty with others.
