A Connecticut native, Sarah currently lives in Portland, Maine where she received a BFA in Illustration with a Minor in Art History from Maine College of Art in 2019.

She enjoys working in a hybrid of traditional and digital mediums. Her work often combines a wry sense of humor with fantastical elements. A strong fascination with the universe provides her with endless inspiration.

When she isn’t drawing, Sarah can be found working in the ICA at MECA as the Exhibitions Assistant and drinking multiple cups of coffee at once.
