ilikesara is the work of designer, maker, and artist Sara Schalliol-Hodge. Based in Denver, Colorado, Sara dreams up, designs, makes by hand, and works with small manufacturers to produce her line of art and art goods.
Sara grew up in the North Georgia woods creating numerous forms of art and worked as an Industrial and Interior Designer after graduating from Savannah College of Art and Design before founding ilikesara. Her business first took root when she began block-printing as a hands-on reprieve from her mostly computer-based design work early in her career. Now Sara’s art and goods can be found at small galleries and boutiques as well as with large corporate clients in airports and shopping malls. Sara also hosts art workshops and held a 3-month Artist Residency at the Denver Children’s Museum.
Sara is inspired by the natural world and dusty, overlooked old things. She incorporates printmaking, illustration, and hand-lettering into much of her work, creating art and artifacts that are curious and ready for adventure. Sara's current collection of goods include bandanas, tea towels, zipper pouches, enamel mugs, hats, greeting cards, pins, patches, stickers, as well as art prints and hand-printed blockprints.
