Name: Sara S.
Cooper City, FL
How long have you lived in NYC/CHI/DC?
What is your favorite children’s book?
The Giving Tree
What is your artistic focus?
Graphic illustration and design
What is your go to activity/craft?
Play dough is my go to activity, or coloring. Sometimes if there’s a favorite movie/show/book that the kids want to watch or read we’ll look at it while making the characters out of Play dough or drawing pictures of them.
What is your favorite food to serve the kids?
I like making PB&J sandwiches together or pancakes with fun stuff in them like blueberries or chocolate chips.
What is your fondest childhood memory?
Going on family trips to Poland to my uncle’s house in the country and exploring the land with my little sister and picking fruit off trees and playing with cats in the grass
When did you know that you wanted to be an artist?
For a long time I had no idea what I wanted to be at all, but I always enjoyed making things with my hands and playing with color and shapes and started seeing that as a sign of what I wanted to do with my life when I was finishing highschool.
If your dreams were to come true today, what would that look like?
I have a large studio space where I am free to experiment with any kind of material I want while also having time to design and publish some kind of magazine or monthly publication of drawings and stories. And people pay me for my Play dough creations. I would also love to write and illustrate a children’s book someday.
