Background and Education
Raised in rural Iowa, Sarah grew up with three sisters and too many farm animals to count. (Some of the more memorable creatures include a lamb named Timmy and two ducks named T-Bird and Quackers.) Growing up on a farm gave Sarah ample time to observe and explore nature, get dirty, and enjoy the cyclical seasons of growth and life.
After receiving a B.A. in Art, Sarah moved to Chicago to pursue a job at The Field Museum of Natural History. There, Sarah discovered a home for her love of design, history, and the natural world. It's also where she honed her skills as a graphic designer and learned to create immersive, three-dimensional environments.
In 2011, Sarah relocated to the Twin Cities where she worked at the Science Museum of Minnesota as an exhibit designer and graphic designer. She started her own design business in 2021, and currently lives in Saint Paul with her husband, two daughters, and a cat named Morris.
