🍄 how i came to be 🍄

~ it has taken years of self development to get to where i am today ~

from darkness towards light ✨

Like many youth, I struggled with a variety of things - in fact I was a pessimist who wore only black, out of distaste for positivity!

Early on in my life I was a victim of bullying for my neurodivergent weird self with a larger body size.

This resulted in very low self-esteem, anger issues, eating disorders, unworthiness, and eventually heavy addictions.

In 2015 my life changed when I quit the substances that were negatively affecting my life, eager to find joy again.

The person I am today is focussed on bringing more kindness, openness, joy, and optimism into the world.

We all face darkness, there is no shame in hard times. Everyone is on their own journey, this is mine to share!

"I commissioned Sara to create a painting as a gift for a friend.

Sara listened attentively to my intentions and ideas for the artwork, kept me updated throughout the process, and created something even more magical than I could have envisioned!

Sara's artwork is unique, creative, and delightful, and I would be happy to work with Sara again."
