Reaching Your Full Creative Potential with Sarah Walsh

March 17 @ 5:00 pm 6:00 pm

This week on 11’s we’re joined by internationally published illustrator and celebrated artist, Sarah Walsh. Sarah’s keen to speak honestly about her journey thus far, managing her success, juggling a waiting list of client projects, making time to pursue her own creative ventures and landing the dream job of re-imagining Roald Dahl’s classic novel Matilda. With over 20 published books under her belt, dozens of unique products available on her Etsy store, and tens of thousands of followers, Sarah’s work is far-reaching and touch’s the lives of people around the globe, but her feet remain firmly planted on the ground. Sarah is hugely appreciative and grateful for the career and life it affords her with family. Listen to Sarah’s story from art school to Hallmark to a Matilda and learn about her relationship with her agent, how she chooses projects, what she worries about and struggles with.

More about Sarah

Sarah is a multidisciplinary artist with a body of work spanning 20 years ranging from illustration, painting, pattern design, hand lettering, product creation, character design and more. She received her BFA in graphic design in upstate NY where she grew up. Her love of gouache paint and her passion for mid-century design, vintage children’s books, fashion, all things magical, folk art, animals, nature and old school signage would become the foundation for her work. Early on in her career, she worked at Hallmark Cards as in house designer and illustrator. After several years she decided to branch off on her own and has since then collaborated with clients like Washington Post, The Guardian, Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster and Blue Q to name a few. She also runs and makes artwork for Tigersheep Friends, a small-batch product-based brand founded by her and her husband Colin Walsh, a fellow illustrator. She currently lives in Kansas City with Colin, their son, a crazy pup, chubby cat and a beta fish. She works from her sunny and plant-filled studio in the historic Rivermarket area.
