Sarahjean Richardson

Trinidadian-Canadian visual-illustrator, Sarahjean Richardson (she/her) is a self-taught, queer artist. She creates with a variety of mediums including pen, alcohol-based marker, and digital media. Her artwork centers on adaptations of realism blended with vibrant, and colourful graphic design. Her passion for art began very early in life and evolved through exploring art techniques of portraiture and colour. As a Black, queer woman, she uses her art to appreciate and honor Blackness by amplifying the beauty and diversity of her community.

The body of her work comprises both personal drawings and commissions. She has completed artwork for the University of Guelph, and Wilfrid Laurier University, and she has shown her work at the 1017 Gallery. Select pieces are presently on display at Esperanto Gallery.
