Hello, I'm Sarah

Artist and Web Developer

I am a web developer with a background in fine art. After working in an art studio for the past 3 years, a friend suggested I try coding and before you could say “hello world” I was hooked. Driven by the need to create and a passion to learn new things, I strive to bring my creativity to programming. When I’m not coding I am in my studio working on my paintings, reading books about science, or making pizza from scratch. See some of my paintings here.
