About the Illustrator:
Sarah Kiser is a full-time, self-taught artist living her dream of creating art. Infusing layers of richly textured colour with elements of whimsy, her artwork presents imagery that is at once hauntingly beautiful yet fiercely evocative – touching the viewer in a deeply personal way.
