Sara Tyson









Sara Tyson


Sara Tyson began her career as an illustrator 30 years ago. After completing her studies at the Ontario College of Art, she worked for many years as both illustrator and graphic designer in national magazines. This dual role as a professional increased her understanding of the function of illustration in communication arts and also made her a thoughtful problem solver. Her figures occupy a highly organized space, with shape, texture, contrast and colour all playing important parts in her concepts. Sara is inspired by early Christian and Byzantine art as well as 20th century painting.
