My name is Lady Sara Richard and I am an Eisner and Ringo Award nominated fine artist and illustrator as well as a writer of short stories currently residing in the woods of New Hampshire. I am most known for illustrating comic book covers for companies such as IDW Publishing, Oni Press, Marvel, Dynamite Comics, Action Lab Ent.; with other illustration work for DC Collectables, StormKing, The Witch House in Salem, MA., and Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. My art can also be seen at the Historic Oakland Cemetery's Visitor Center in Atlanta and has been printed in British VOGUE, Vanity Fair, and The World of Interiors magazine to name a few.

My inspirations come from Victorian funerary and mourning customs, Art Nouveau and Art Deco as well as the history and eerie ambiance of Salem, Massachusetts. Why Salem? Other than my mind being on permanent vacation inside a late Victorian-era New England autumn, I am the 10th Great Grand Daughter of one of the victims of the Witch Trials, Margaret Scott. As for the title of "Lady," I own small plots of conservation land in Aberdeenshire and Glencoe, Scotland; another place that inspires my art and where my mind wanders to.

My goal as an artist is to explore my fascination with what might lie beyond the veil. To curb that intrigue with a beautiful twist, to find that beauty in bones, emotion in an old skull, to capture the movement of a ghost on the wind and to draw upon the aesthetics of the past. History and art have always gone hand in hand for me be it in the world of painters and authors of the mid to late 1800s, to the Deco-age of the 1920's. I am as fascinated with painting wildlife and exploring their symbolism as I am with painting gorgeous human figures who may or may not have already passed on. The artistry of the Victorians especially in their mourning customs really resonates and inspires me. Their absolute commitment to memorial and bravery facing their mortality is such a foreign attitude today. I'd like to bring a modern light to that historical mindset translated through my art.
