Hello dear ones, I am so glad you are here. In the flood of choices and information in life, you have decided to come spend a little time with me. I do not take that for granted. I am Sarah- a friend, artist, writer, podcaster, lover of Jesus + teatime + books + hammocks + walks + picnics + quality time + hugs + gardening. I make it my mission to help you celebrate and remember good times with loved ones. I don't know about you, but I know I need help remembering. Here at Sincerely Sarah Studios, you will find art, writing, encouragement, instruction, and I hope sincerity and truth that reminds you of a greater love that comes in quietness and rest.
the quality of being free from pretense, deceit, or hypocrisy.
Where are you? What a relational question the more I think about it! I am located in Norfolk, a place I am learning to love dearly.
Here's a little bio in the third person I had fun making the other day:
Sarah Haddox is a Virginia born, University of Virginia educated, and world-wandering lover of Light. She does not know how to endure life without painting. While her creative interests are many, she is thrilled to be able to work in oil again especially in the beauty of Eastern Virginia. She is an artist, writer, and podcast host. You can find out more and subscribe to her newsletter below.

I chose the plural form because I know there is more to come. You will find my art, writing, podcast, and instruction studios. I like to explore and try new projects. My blog is called the Playroom, based on a delightful place my siblings and I entertained ourselves for hours upon hours growing up and will lead you to the words of my podcast. I know that I'm here to pursue and create beauty, truth, and meaningful experiences. I also want to encourage younger women to pursue their dreams. I desire to help others find creative rest too. And if you have made it this far, I have a mind exercise for you. Okay, you are stressed or worried about something. We all seem to be these days. I want you to close your eyes and imagine (using your hands too) blowing up a balloon with all your cares, tying it up, and letting it go up to God (or your higher power). Take a minute to let it rise up and watch it go. Breathe. You are going to be okay. And we can do this together! Now, what color was your balloon? ;) Let me know. I'm here for you, friend. I look forward to connecting!
