Sarah Kersting is an artist and graphic designer based in Echo Park. She works across different mediums with an emphasis on bold Sharpie illustrations and expressive digital drawings. Her signature style, California Ornamental, brings together her background in American studies and Italian art history by wedding nostalgic Americana iconography with the Italian Grottesque traditional style of ornamentation. Every piece begins as a freehand Sharpie sketch that she alters and experiments with, creating a hand drawn feel to her work across mediums. Her specialty is drawing American pasttimes, LA city scenes and sexy classic cars but when it comes to commissions,  the sky is the limit.
