I was born in the year of the monkey. As a kid I was curious like George, climbed whatever I could, wandered around, and basically did all I could to make my birth year proud. One day as little Sarah was shuffling through the meaningless envelopes that were the mail I recognized the logo for the zoo. My curiosity was soaring so I took it to my mom and as she opened the letter, looked at me, and in all seriousness said, “Oh no they want you back. I guess your actual family misses you and wants you returned to them.” I was floored and did not know how to take the news because I had been raised among the humans with no clue of my primal past. I did not have poo flinging confidence! Eventually I realized their cruel joke but luckily in the years since I have had art to cope.
I graduated with a degree in Illustration from California State University, Long Beach in the year of the monkey. Art has always been my favorite medium for storytelling, sharing ideas, or just giving people cool and hopefully beautiful things to look at. My dream is to continue to create until the end of my days because I still believe art can change the world.
