About me

Sara Teramo MA Designer and Visual Artist Interdisciplinary creative professional, mastering both Digital and Traditional Art I have a long work experience as product and graphic designer paired with a background as fine art painter. Since joining the School of Visual Art a couple of years ago for a residency in New York , I concentrated my passion on digital painting. You can see some examples here and on my webpage www.conceptsara.com I'm looking for more challenges in Visual Development and Digital Art applied to films, theatre, video games, web and print media. I believe we can make any medium more comfortable and engaging to use by reconnecting it with the appeal of genuine and natural looking digital paintings and drawings, images that now can literally come "alive" and interact with the viewer contacts +44 758 6564 828 sara@conceptsara.com
