Sarah Adam, Local Artist

Illustration is what I do. I've been drawing since I was 3, and I don't plan on stopping. I enjoy using a variety of materials- pen & ink, acrylic, watercolor, pencils- to make my compositions. From frolicking foods to a lemon-slice moon rising over the snow, I chose many subjects to illustrate. Children playing, robots beeping, goldfish blurping, even a soft-shoeing toaster or two. I like to think I can put whimsy into anything; give something eyes and a smile or make it jump up and dance. When I'm not making whimsical faerie-bugs to amuse myself, I'm busy making illustrations for others. I've created picturebook art for a local writer, which was aired on local-access television. I've also created watercolor compositions for the Recorder's special section covers, including the Holiday Gift Guide and the Franklin County Fair. I've made postcards for horror-television hostesses, hand-painted signs for a candy shop, a running orange for a diabetes benefit, and a hand-painted chair for the Greenfield Library. I hope to put all of my efforts into children's books someday. I love illustrating poems and short stories. If you ever need some art to go along with your writings, or need help with graphic design, keep me in mind!
