Agent: Shadra Strickland
Sarah Jung is an illustrator and children’s book writer. She has a B.F.A (2017) in Illustration, creative writing and book arts from Maryland Institute College of Art.
Sarah was born in the small state of Maine, and grew up in Vancouver, Canada. Raised in a Korean household, her experiences of varied cultures made her a fluid writer and illustrator that she is today. She enjoys telling and listening to stories from different walks of life, and her unique yet nostalgic illustrations evoke the idea of children’s dreams and memories. She is inspired by those around her, and the childhood memories she holds dear to her heart.
Sarah’s goal as a story teller is to bring forth the stories that often go forgotten. She wants to share with others beautiful stories she has heard in the past, and show that beautiful things can happen when we listen to things we have never heard of before.
Sarah currently resides in Baltimore, MD working as a freelance illustrator with her friends and their little cat Remi.
