Sarah Adam, Local Artist
Illustration is what I do. I've
been drawing since I was 3, and I don't plan on stopping. I enjoy using
a variety of materials- pen & ink, acrylic, watercolor, pencils-
to make my compositions. From frolicking foods to a lemon-slice moon
rising over the snow, I chose many subjects to illustrate. Children
playing, robots beeping, goldfish blurping, even a soft-shoeing toaster
or two. I like to think I can put whimsy into anything; give something
eyes and a smile or make it jump up and dance. When I'm not making whimsical
faerie-bugs to amuse myself, I'm busy making illustrations for others.
I've created picturebook art for a local writer, which was aired on
local-access television. I've also created watercolor compositions for
the Recorder's special section covers, including the Holiday Gift Guide
and the Franklin County Fair. I've made postcards for horror-television
hostesses, hand-painted signs for a candy shop, a running orange for
a diabetes benefit, and a hand-painted chair for the Greenfield Library.
I hope to put all of my efforts into children's books someday. I love
illustrating poems and short stories. If you ever need some art to go
along with your writings, or need help with graphic design, keep me
