Beara is the imagination playground for Sarah-Jayne McCreath, an artist that lives and works in Brisbane, Australia.
At the age of four, Sarah-Jayne would visit her neighbour for the sole purpose of using their higher quality coloured pencils. Now she is grown up and has her own high quality pencils, but still inhabits the imaginative world of the child. Her work is made of mythology, uneasy creep and a love of all things weird and original.
Available for commissions and collaborations.
Art Pharmacy profile and store
"Sarah-Jayne McCreath is a dreamer, openly admitting to spending a lot of time in the "far-away land deep in my noggin'". Her private magical world is populated by kooky black and white monsters of all shapes and sizes, ranging from figures inspired by Jim Henson puppets to more anthropomorphic deities, complete with feathered crowns and adornments of what looks like hundreds and thousands."
