Sarah Hempel Irani has been sculpting expressive figures in clay, bronze, and stone for over twenty years. Originally from Michigan, she moved to Maryland to apprentice with the former artist-in-residence at the Washington National Cathedral. Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church in Potomac, Maryland commissioned Sarah to create two larger-than-life-sized sculptures cut from Carrara marble.

She lives with her husband, their daughter, and a border collie named Tom Sawyer in a tiny brick cape cod near Washington, DC.
