It’s little surprise that Sarah Walsh’s illustrations have an uplifting effect. After 12 years of working in Hallmark Cards as in house designer and illustrator, her artistic creation has a wholesomeness feel to it, without trying too hard.
“It was like going to graduate school,” she told Jama’s Alphabet Soup, describing her time in Hallmark. “You learn sooooo much. The people that work there are from all over the country, even the world and they are some of the nicest, most talented bunch I’ve ever met. I’ve made life long friends with a few. I met my husband at Hallmark while on the kids team and even started an all girl band with my best friends there as well.”
She now works from her studio in Kansas City with her fellow illustrator husband, Colin Walsh, their son, a scrappy pup and chubby cat.
