About our Artist:

Born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in New Jersey, Sarah Stone’s early artistic influences were steeped in the lurid petri dishes of underground comics.

Upon graduating Philadelphia’s University of the Arts, she received an offer to work at Ralph Bakshi studios in California. Moving to Los Angeles to be an animator, her plans were hijacked by a group of art directors from Roger Corman’s film studios who promptly put her to work creating murals and props for the soon-to-be cult classic, Android. This experience led to a lively career designing for many other Hollywood productions including The Wonder Years, Freaks and Geeks, and Tales from the Crypt.

Sarah still provides her artistic services to films as a creator of original art for sets and shows her paintings in galleries around the country.

Her studio rests in a canyon of ancient rock formations inhabited by a variety of colorful spirits.
