Sarah Elfers is a story teller. She utilizes illustration, comics, literature, photography and painting to communicate her narratives.
Her tendency towards human subjects in her work is due to her interest in the human consciousness and the way it acts as a bridge between the real and unreal. Her work explores the relationship of the external landscape and internal landscape, and then the projection of the internal landscape through creation.
The act of creating is directly correlated with her interest in engaging in long winded monotony. She finds said tasks to be therapeutic and contenting, allowing for the most active form of introspection and internal exploration which is a crucial part in her creative process.
