Sarah Walsh’s Quirky Illustrations Are Worth the Hype

Illustrator Sarah Walsh makes delightful illustrations full of childlike charm. Her artistic career began early. After receiving her BFA in graphic design from St. Rose in Albany, NY where she grew up, she landed a job at Hallmark Cards as in house designer and illustrator and has worked there for 12 years.

“It was like going to graduate school,” Walsh told Jama’s Alphabet Soup, describing her time in Hallmark. “You learn sooooo much. The people that work there are from all over the country, even the world and they are some of the nicest, most talented bunch I’ve ever met.”

Nowadays she works from her studio in Kansas City, where she shares a home with her illustrator husband, Colin Walsh, their son, a scrappy pup and chubby cat.

Take a look at some of her work in the gallery below.
