Buy @saralunart a coffee


Hello Friends!
This is a super cool way of supporting me as an artist. 
Donate or "Buy me a coffee" and help me to continue creating amazing art.

I am a visual artist and illustrator with a specialization in textile art.

Throughout the course of my studies, I experimented with a variety of materials, from watercolors to digital tools until I found my niche with punch needle in 2017. I started making punch needle portraits in my last year of college. I found this technique while researching materials for my degree project. I fell in love with it right away.

I grew up in Chile surrounded by weavers and craft makers and I’ve been working with fibers since I can remember. After moving to the US in 2018, I started feeling homesick and a way for me to feel more at home was to return to the yarns. My family has always been very crafty, and one of my favorite memories is sitting with my mom, aunts, and grandma around a table full of sweet treats and tea and knitting until our hands hurt. So it was then that I rediscovered the technique and honed my skill. 

Using my two degrees, I mix the digital and the analogous to create unique pieces. I try to make my work as unique as possible, using beautiful gradients and punch needles that I make myself. Lately, I’ve been experimenting with spinning my own yarn, and it’s like a new world of possibilities opened up.
