Sarah Winifred Searle was born in Portland, Maine on Antonio Banderas’ 27th birthday, and from a very early age she was in a polyamorous relationship with her two greatest loves: visual storytelling and history.
At the time Sarah created the Teen Librarian art for this page, she was taking evening classes from Harvard University Extension School in Humanities and Visual Arts to turn her Associates into a Bachelors and earn an academic balance to her professional degree. She also spent her days in a little office at the Boston Public Library as Children’s Writer-in-Residence, where she was writing and illustrating a graphic novelopens a new window about family history and ghost lore from her hometown.
She spends her nights in a suburban apartment with a cat known as Kitty, a chinchilla called Creepus, and a human named Joe. And she loves her life. She truly does. Sarah created the avatars for John and Jessi.
