Hi, my name is Sarah Harris! A little bit about myself; I’m currently enrolled at OCAD University in Toronto and I’m acquiring a BDES in Illustration. I'm a very determined person with an upbeat outlook on life and I’m hoping to make a successful career for myself as an illustrator.
Ever since I was a child I’ve had a love for art. The act of drawing or painting seemed to calm me in a way that nothing else could. However, the moment I decided I wanted to be an artist for the rest of my life was when my grandmother died of cancer. It might seem odd to some that I found so much clarity through such a sad event, but when I think of my grandmother and how happy my art made her, it makes me want to spread that joy to others as well. This is why I aspire to be an artist. Even during the darkest times of one's life, art can be used to show you a light that you may not have been able to find on your own. This was what made me find my purpose in life and that is why I do what I do.
