Creating weird art, illustrations, and indie books—
SARAH CUTHILL is an illustrator based in the historic Gold Rush county of Calaveras in Northern California. Sarah is known for her saturated colors and strikingly odd subject matter. She works primarily in digital mediums; the intersection between traditional art and digital painting inspires Sarah. She has been creating art all of her life and enjoys the challenge of working with diverse media.
Since 2005, Sarah has taught visual arts classes to K-8th grade students at several local grade schools as well as been awarded several Arts in Schools grants to teach drawing and painting. Sarah has been Director for three summer arts camps, serving nearly 150 children annually since 2008. With over 16 years of experience teaching visual arts to grade school students, Sarah is now focusing on developing her own art and style. Sarah is working towards her Illustration degree at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco.
In 2020, she began illustrating and writing her own storybooks and illustrated novels. Different cultural mythologies and anomalous concepts inspire Sarah. She persistently creates art in forms that can be easily and happily consumed by people who may not usually seek out art. Her favorite ongoing project is Mythic Mail, her series of fully illustrated letters featuring mythical creatures and storytelling in the form of monthly snail mail.
“I come from a long line of artists and creatives. Art is in my veins, it is at the core of who I am. If I am only able to contribute one thing to the world, it would be to create weird art for weird people.”
