My name is Sarah Gavagan.

I’m an illustrator with a passion for creating fantasy creatures, sprawling environments and colorful, expressive characters. I work digitally as well as in oils, watercolor and printmaking. My work often focuses on storytelling, mythology, and the fragile balance between nature and humanity. 

I have worked as an concept and UI artist at Typhoon Studios in Montréal and at Firaxis Games in Baltimore, working on character, landscape, creature designs, key images, and HUD and other UI assets. I'm currently living in Seattle.

I graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in Illustration. I've also studied Japanese at Osaka Gakuin University 大阪学院大学 and Lithography at the Osaka University of the Arts 大阪芸術大学.
