Saara Knapp is a Finnish-American artist based in Florence, Italy and the Hudson Valley of New York, USA. After completing a B.S. in Biological Anthropology and Evolutionary Studies from Binghamton University in 2016, she now uses her scientific and analytical background to help her navigate, transcribe, and translate the world around her with her artistic works.


She graduated from The Florence Academy of Art’s full-time painting program in December of 2021, and now works out of her Florence-based studio producing landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and figurative works. Along with her painting practice, she has the opportunity to regularly teach at The Florence Academy of Art and contribute as a writer for The FAA Collective. 

Saara's works can be found in private collections throughout the world, and she has participated in exhibitions in the USA,  Europe, and Asia.
