Hiya! I'm Sara and I'm obsessed with watercolor!

Drawing, painting, and teaching are my passion. If I could, it's all I would ever do! 

What I Do

I am constantly exploring watercolor, it's a living medium that always surprises me! The more I teach it, the more I learn and challenge myself with it. You may read  my artist's statement to learn more about the work itself.

I have taught drawing and watercolor for 15 years; work with seniors, homeless, and youth to discover their creativity in my community; and I have traveled the Midwest for the last 5 years displaying and selling my art at fairs and festivals. 

I don't want to stop going where this road is heading, so Patreon has entered the picture.

Who I Am

I grew up in Des Moines, IA, my dad is retired art teacher now photographer (his Patreon page is here), my mother works for animal and human rights on multiple levels, and I have a younger sister who is a therapist consultant for the Iowa National Guard.

When I was little we were forced to play outside, where most of my imagination took over and everything came to life. Fantasy has always been a part of me, fairies specifically. I'd take my barbies and trolls outside and they would have adventures under the pine trees and phlox flowers.

In college a traveling opportunity to study illustration abroad in Scotland came and I took it! Obsessed, when I returned to the states my senior project was on the history of Celtic folklore, myths, legends, and how they effect our cultures. I enjoy conversation on these topics and how important the imagination and fairytales are to our children today!

I have been married for 10 years to another Iowan, because although I wanted to move to Scotland, I truly adore my home city. We have two little kiddos, 5yr and 2 yr, and I'm a stay at home mom. I teach drawing and watercolor part time at the  Des Moines Art Center. I am a signature member of the Iowa Watercolor Society, a board member of the Iowa Watercolor Society, and award winner of the Iowa State Fair

I have been published by  Willow Creek PressBarron'sWalter FosterU.S. Game Systems, and internationally. I have done numerous self published children's books as well.

Goals
$263 of $300 per month
Start a monthly video series teaching watercolor & drawing.

I shine most when teaching something I love and watch others grow in that too. My vision for this goal is to provide a YouTube channel exclusively for teaching videos.

All patreons pledging $10 or more will have access to this goal once reached!

The YouTube channel would focus on beginner and intermediate watercolor and drawing. As those two do go hand in hand. I will teach from my already published book How to Draw and Paint Watercolor Fairies, and teach from my 14 years of past objectives.
