Sarah Sullivan's Profile

About

Welcome to my shop, Cottage Garden Studios! My name is Sarah Sullivan and I am an illustrator and photographer! My hope with each piece of artwork I create is to warm your heart and make you smile! If I am lucky, maybe… just maybe my work will bring back memories of some wonderful children’s book you read when you were young! I loved beautifully illustrated books when I was a child. They took me to wonderful, magical places! Dragons, magic, fairies and knights on steeds! Gardens full of hidden creatures and blooming flowers! When I create an illustration I want to touch people, I want to reach that child! So, I try to create illustrations that are full of whimsy, detail, joy and just a dash of magic for good measure!

I have been an artist all of my life, both classically trained and taught myself a few tricks over the years. My medium of choice is pen and ink and colored pencil. I adore the pen and ink because it allows me to add all those details that I find so fascinating. The colored pencils because I have had five children of my own! Colored pencils can be picked up and put away easily! Paint is just too tempting to little fingers! That and I adore color...deep, rich colors!

We recently relocated to the beautiful island of St. Croix from North Idaho near lovely Lake Coeur d Alene. We are loving the island life. Happily married to Jim of Near Earth Exploration here on Etsy. I have five children from 33 years on down to 10! Two of my chickies are still in the nest! We also have William our delightful Siamese cross! I hope my creations bring you a smile and warm your heart! Happy shopping and thank you so much for stopping by!

Truly, Sarah
