What does it mean to explore different artistic passions? Our guest, Sara Jillian, shares her life of creativity and how she has explored writing, illustrating, acting, being a clown and more.

An artist from a young age, Sarah learned how to embrace her creative nature, and she shares with us the events, challenges, and lessons that brought her to where she is now. 

In today’s episode, you’ll learn…

  • If you should focus on just one art form.
  • The challenges of distraction for artists.
  • Being authentic when taking on a character.


“My advice would be, whatever you choose to do, whatever art form you choose to do, just don’t ever give up, whatever it is, don’t ever stop, don’t ever think you’re on the wrong track…”

“I was in the swimming pool, swimming when I came up with the idea for my books, and it was in my mind and it drove me nuts, and I was like I have to get dressed really fast, I have to run home…”

“I didn’t take clowning to acting, I took clowning to writing and illustrating”
