Hi, I'm Sarah. I'm a self-educated illustrator and designer living in Portland, OR with a passion for graceful chroma palettes and sharp typography. Soft, ethereal colors charm and delight me. Botanicals and wildlife, insects and reptiles, and mythical creatures of tall tales and folklore all enchant me. My art is an embodiment of the diverse joys I find sprinkled throughout my everyday life and imagination.
I began my career as an assistant and moved to project management after eleven years, and I have concurrently worked on and off with design and illustration since 2014. After all this time, I'm thrilled to finally open my online shop for prints of my work and to offer my creative services. I'm a one-person show and I handle the entire process of my work from the conception and design to printing, packaging, and shipping. in addition to web design, online presence, and marketing.
Check out this post to learn more about my journey with illustration. If you need convincing, there are references to lions and milkshake accidents.
GET TO KNOW ME
Before settling in Portland seven years ago, I bounced all over the west from my homeland in Utah to the Idaho panhandle to Phoenix to the Bay. My home is shared with my excitable rescue Plott Hound puppy, Tallulah, who loves to chase her own tail. I have always been drawn to creative arts that would allow me the freedom of self-expression; in addition to drawing animals as a child, I read whatever books I could get my hands on, attended gymnastics and ballroom dance classes, participated in choir and theater, and had a brief stint with the violin that we both agreed was best settled in separation. I also immerse myself in baking, and love experimenting in the kitchen with flavors, textures, and colors. My wardrobe consists almost entirely of floral dresses, and I have more unicorn artwork in my house than may be reasonable for someone in their thirties. I feel happiest when I am near the ocean and mist from the sea rolls in across the shoreline as the sun disappears from sight, and I'm one of those annoying people who bring books to bars to read with just the company of a cocktail.

LET'S WRAP IT UP
It means everything to me that you are here perusing my work and reading what I have to say. I hope you find something you like. And if you haven't found that something yet, maybe we can work on it together.
