Sarah Gardner lives with her family in a small surf town called Cardiff by the Sea, in Southern California. She is a practicing lawyer, a cancer (tongue) survivor, and a self-taught mixed media artist and teacher.

Working in her art journal and making lots of shareable art (postcards, ATCs, zines, and more!), Sarah has followed what excites her, gone through some trial and error, practiced, and discovered her own creative style. Through all the years she’s been making stuff, she has learned that what gives her joy is the process of creating, not the “perfect” end result. She still wants things to turn out in a way that she likes, but perfection isn't the motivating force or the unkind dictator in her head anymore.

Sarah believes that creating, transforming art supplies into something new, attending to the little choices she makes along the way, and focusing on the process instead of the result, is a mindfulness practice. That’s why creativity is her self care. She hopes to share creativity as a way to well-being, helping others quiet their perfectionistic inner critics.

Sarah is the author of Share Your Joy: Inspired Mixed Media Shareable Art, in which she shares her mail art journey and lots of fun shareable art projects. Creating gives her joy, and sharing her art with others is sharing that joy. Teaching and writing a book are ways to share her joy, too. And so is designing stencils!

One of Sarah’s mixed media mottos is “When in doubt, use a stencil!” She was honored to be a StencilGirl® Creative Team Member in 2021-2022. She uses many StencilGirl® stencils in the projects in her book! And she is thrilled to be among all of the wonderful artists who have designed stencils for StencilGirl®.
