Hi. I'm Sarah.

I’m a designer and illustrator, with a background in both design and visual effects. I spent many years working in design studios, first in NYC and then New Zealand, before eventually transitioning into visual effects, working as a texture painter on films at Weta Digital, Digital Domain, and Lucasfilm.

A few years ago, my husband and I moved to Chicago to join The Alinea Group and create ‘The Aviary Cocktail Book’ and several follow-up publications. As design director for the restaurant group, I provide art direction, design, & illustration across 5 restaurants.

I use illustration in my design work whenever I can. I’m a collector of artistic skills and love learning new things.

Outside of work, I spend most of my time being a mom of a little one. When I get a bit of free time, I like to ride my bike or draw on my iPad.

This is Marée, a colorful new portfolio for presenting your work. If you’re a modern illustrator or a designer, we made Marée for you.
