"I learned a long time ago that reality was much weirder than anyone's imagination."
- Hunter S. Thompson
Hey there, I’m Sara.
Have you ever had a dream so vivid that you've rushed to write down everything you can remember, only to realize everything you recall is indescribable, jumbled, lost? I strive to capture that moment, to enhance it, to build on it. To turn dreams into reality, to focus on that one bit of soul while everything else, everything that doesn't matter, fades away.
I've worked in tech, advertising, gaming, but all roads lead back to art for me. It amazes me that so many people choose to cover their walls with the things I make. That they give me the honor of painting their baby's first portrait, or ask me to paint a long-lost loved one. There's nothing better in the world, in my opinion.
You can check out my portfolio here. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form at the bottom of this page. Keep scrolling for odd facts about me.
And thanks for visiting :)
Did you know?
I have low-to-no depth perception. Some people say they can tell from my paintings, but I think those people are probably full of it. I also had to start wearing an eye patch recently to try and fix this, but the options for eye patches out there are pretty dreary… maybe that’ll be my next major project. Fashionable eye patches for amblyopic cyberpunks!
In 2015 my team and I won an award from NASA (Youth STEM Outreach award) for our game "Oregon Trajectory" based on the cult classic game "Oregon Trail". We built it in a weekend, and I wrote scenarios and did the environmental art for it. They wouldn't allow me to write any cannibalism scenarios, that really bummed me out.
I started painting when I was 4 years old, and to be honest I wasn't terribly good at it.
What is a sunset industry?
plural noun: sunset industries
an old and declining industry
Sadly sunsetindustries.com is taken by a manufacturing fab lab specializing in CNC lathes and custom work, so I had to get creative.
