Today’s spotlight is on Sarah McNeil, an Australian artist and illustrator. Her illustrations are delicate and her animals have a cute quality about them that I adore. Recently Sarah has been focusing on publishing her own limited edition zines. I am so excited to share this sampling of Sarah McNeil’s work — make sure to check out her flickr account and website for more. Thank you Sarah! -eden

Artist Bio

Most of my time is spent making art and objects, exploring nature, and travelling to discover new and interesting experiences. My work is inspired by my adventures, by taking time to notice the small details of things, and by the relationships of living things to natural and unnatural environments.

Sarah completed a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art from Monash University, Melbourne, in 2007, and has been working full time as an artist and illustrator ever since. Her paintings, art books, and illustration work have been exhibited and published in Canada, the U.S, the U.K, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere around the world.

After living and working in Wellington, New Zealand for the past three years, Sarah has recently moved to Melbourne, Australia, setting up a studio here to make as much art as possible, and to decide on the next adventure.
