My name is Sarah Shaw. I am an artist and educator, currently based in Kathmandu, Nepal and New York City. I grew up in a town near Portland, Maine, and from a very young age, I yearned to make art and travel the world. I have worked and studied in South Korea, Colombia and Nepal. I am currently pursuing my MFA in Visual Narrative at the School of Visual Arts in NYC.
Living abroad has greatly influenced my work and enhanced my observation skills. Through comics and illustrations, I document daily life in places where I live and travel. My projects often combine digital and analog techniques and take on many forms—from comics to short animations to intricate, large-scale drawings, but they are all grounded in visual storytelling.
