Fine Art macro Photographer & Mixed Media Artist
I have been creative my whole life, starting quite young with sewing and making random things and over the years I have taught myself more (and more!) techniques and forms of art. I remember being 10 years old and making a life size puppet, that I then used to force my family to watch a puppet show. I have always been weird and my art can move in some odd directions, but I am at my happiest when I am creating.
Whether it be through my photography, art, writing or what I create with my hands, art and creation in all forms is my true passion. In the past few years I have been lucky to work with and learn from an amazing friend and professional photographer Jamie-Lee Ward.It has enabled me to take my art to photography and editing, and discover new ways to see the world. My inspiration comes from many genres, though my favorites are macro, nature,architecture and landscapes.
On the other side of Sara Travis Studios, I am a Maker and creator, who works with mostly natural, recycled, upcycled or re-configured dollar store items. Boy do I love that dollar store. Creating doesn’t have to cost a fortune, and I have far too much fun finding creative ways to make things. I am currently Making custom fantasy headpieces, “armor” (decorative only), cosplay/rp/larp/fantasy props, walking sticks, natural art and occasionally whatever inspiration strikes for a random item.
