Red Fox drawing

Hi and Welcome! I'm Sarah and I'm an artist and illustrator living in San Francisco. I love the views, steep hills, neighborhoods and tasty treats that abound in this beautiful, walkable city. I'm originally from Kalamazoo, Michigan but have called the San Francisco Bay Area home since about 1984 (even though I still have a big place in my heart for my home state).


In my art and illustration I love exploring and experimenting with line, texture, pattern, lettering, color and humor. I enjoy working from life and from my imagination. My art often has a poetic, narrative aspect along with a touch of whimsy (or black humor depending on the day). 

I'm inspired by comics, children's book illustration, zines, packaging, signage, vintage shops, scrap heaps, trees, things seen on walks, music, books, TV, art supplies, yoga and all living creatures.

I studied drawing, painting, and conceptual and graphic design at San Francisco State University. I've also taken boatloads of creative workshops and courses over the years and consider myself a lifelong learner. I live with my husband, Ronan, and our imaginary pets, Scrimshaw, Jasper and Pepper.
