I’m a freelance illustrator based in Philadelphia. After many years designing for the advertising and non-profit worlds, I turned to illustration where my love for drawing and design converge.

As an illustrator, I love collaborating on all sorts of projects including editorial, advertising, packaging, and children's products. My work balances a love of handmade and digital processes for a fresh, artful approach. I’m inspired by the stories behind everyday experiences, with a focus on good eats, healthy living and globe-trotting.

Soul Women of Detroit, Michigan by Sarah Ferone

Philadelphia, PA, US


A trip to ICON in Detroit this past July had me look a little deeper at its music history – particularly the soul music that arose in the 1960’s. These are just some of the badass women who's songs that still resonate today – as well as some of the places that gave birth to a vibrant music industry.

I created a Spotify playlist of the artists included in my map, listen here: http://ow.ly/eGhV30lyq0b
