Hi! I'm Sara Wasserboehr (WAH-sir-bor), born and raised in the great state of North Carolina. I attended the Savannah College of art and design in Savannah, GA, earning a degree in Illustration and Graphic Design. I really love to tell stories through illustrations and combining that with good design.
My dream is to help change the world that young girls live in, to encourage them to follow their own dreams and do great things. Though I'm engrossed in my art, I do love other things: singing Disney songs in the shower, collecting coins from around the world, eating as much candy as I can get my hands on, obsessing over Netflix series, and seducing as many cats as possible.
