"My design inspiration varies from piece to piece. I have notes all over the place that are filled with ideas for new creations. I'm also really drawn to simplicity. I'm a sucker for a simple, beautiful design."

When Sarah first began embroidering, it was an artistic adventure into the contemporary notions of femininity. She spent her college years creating large-scale conceptual works with the stuff and, after awhile, decided to take a step back and focus on smaller, more accessible pieces. Things to share. And in order to keep her never-ending flow of ideas somewhat organized, Sarah's taken to list-making. Once the ideas go into production, they result in well-planned wall art that, well, doesn't look overly planned at all.
