A little bit about me :)

)

Me 🙂

So my name is Sarah, and I’m a Pisces. I enjoy long walks on the beach at sunset and dinner by candlelight and…

Wait, what’s that? This isn’t E-Harmony.com? Oh. Right. Well then.

Moving on.

I am ridiculously passionate about this art stuff. It is my heart, my soul and my lifeline.

About 2 and a half years ago, I was in this really icky place. At 12, I had been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and I was at an all time low – I’d started having these freaky seizures, I felt really sick, I’d dropped out of school, I was depressed, and I was in an emotionally abusive relationship. Doors were shutting left and right and I was an emotional wreck. To make a long, involved and kind of boring story short – the day after my 18th birthday, I nearly killed myself. Yeah.

Except something stopped me. Call it intuition, a divine whisper, common sense kicking me in the butt, whatever. The point is, I made the choice that day to never let the crappy stuff win, ever again. And so I dragged myself kicking and screaming out of depression, eventually walked away from the abuser, and began life again.

This is where the art comes in – it saved me, literally. It gave me purpose, something to hang on to, even when the waves were 20 feet high. And somehow, through a series of small miracles and my own insane determination to stay afloat, I am now here – a high school graduate and creative entrepreneur, showing in galleries, and juried festivals and working on commission for lovely people like you. Life is swell.

Can you feel my gratitude? Because I am knee-deep in it.

So now, I’m on a mission – to share my art with the world, and to inspire others to live their best life, and show them that when you think you’re about to drown, it’s really the beginning of a marvelous adventure.

Please, join me on it. I’d love to hear from you.
