About Sarah Louise

Christmas Day, 1990, five year old Sarah woke up to a particularly large box under the tree, amongst the Lego sets, Baby Sitter's Club books, and dinosaur action toys. Inside that box was what what every 80s/early 90s kid dreamed of: A Sega Master System II, with Alex the Kid in Miracle World...

I'm Sarah Louise, Sydney based game artist and illustrator. I specialise in 3D modelling (mainly environmental art), texturing, and concept art. I've always viewed videos games as a means of creative expression. From the age of six, I would draw GUI mock-ups for some sort of platform game that I made up. From the age of thirteen, I would create little Choose Your Own Adventure games in Power Point, by linking slides.

Aside from my art, I work as a mechanic in a popular Inner City workshop. Other interests include cats, powerlifting, boxing, landscaping, gardening, interior design, books (mostly Gothic fiction)...
