Sara Galkin has a BFA from Washington University in St. Louis, MO. Her focus was glassblowing and painting.
When she graduated in 1994, she was told that playtime was over and the best thing to do was to find a job that has some creativity. As a child with undiagnosed ADHD, she was encouraged to just get through school and do her best.
Her learning style was not considered a superpower in those days.
After having kids, her instincts and creativity began pouring out of her.
She began filling her house with her kids art noticing they were references to life adults could not remember.
Sara worked in publishing and advertising for 20 years before she began to open up and embrace her own vulnerabilities. She gave herself permission to realize her purpose as an artist and a teacher.
