Red Fox drawing

Hello and Welcome! I'm Sarah and I'm an artist and illustrator who lives in San Francisco. I love the neighborhoods, steep hills, and tasty treats that abound in this beautiful, walkable city. I'm originally from Kalamazoo, Michigan but have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area off an on since about 1984.


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

Inspiration comes from comics, zines, children's book illustration, packaging, signage, vintage shops, scrap heaps, trees, city streets, music, book arts, TV, snail mail, art supplies, yoga, animals and fellow humans.

I studied drawing, painting, and conceptual and graphic design at San Francisco State University. I've also taken boatloads of 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.
