I live in sunny Los Angeles with my husband, Corey, our daughter Poppy and fur babies Archer and Rooster. I’m a sucker for vintage cars, yacht rock, a killer cheese board, and a crisp rosé.

I am an artist. I love creating beautiful spaces and experiences for people. And I’ve spent over a decade doing it: first in school for art history and interior design, next for 10+ years of art direction work in Hollywood, and then for 7 years in event production.

Nothing brings me more joy than watching my clients’ faces light up when they see what I’ve helped them create: an event tailored to their needs and elevated beyond their wildest expectations.

Let’s make some magic together.

I’m Sarah.
