Beginning in 2009, Sarah worked with Chronicle Books on a collection of gift and paper products. The collection contains products from labels and stickers to notecards and activity sets. Her thumbprint activity sets are super fun and popular across all age groups. If you are interested in carrying any of these products in your own store, please contact Chronicle Books directly.
Before all those publications were made above, Sarah was a wee little tiny born in the Midwest and raised in the South. She spent most of her childhood creating elaborate neighborhood monorail bicycle map systems and singing “It’s a Small World” until her mother could take no more. She received her BA in Fine Arts at Columbia College before heading up the coast to the Big Apple for graduate school. After spending some time hopping from Brooklyn to Manhattan to Jersey City, she completed her MFA degree in Studio Art from the School of Visual Arts and left the world of non-profit arts management to return to the land of boiled peanuts and iced tea (half and half, please).
Upon moving back to South Carolina, she started her former online business, The Small Object, and left the drudgery of trying to get galleries to show her work in NYC. After meeting her wife, they lived for several years in Savannah, GA before moving to Atlanta in 2010. Currently, her work is more illustration based than fine arts focused. She is constantly swimming back and forth and laying claim in-between worlds without binary constructs and strict borders.
