Illustrator Imagines Her Favorite Albums As Quilts

Sara Thielker describes her illustrations as an extension of herself and of her love for the earth. “I practice green living as much as I possibly can, therefore, always print on recycled or sustainable paper and do not use plastic packaging for any of my products,” she wrote on her personal website. “When I am not illustrating you can often find me outside exploring with my family or in my kitchen creating vegan meals or treats.”

Born in Oxford and now living and illustrating from her home studio in Wiltshire, her illustrations are in full bloom, with plants, flowers, and nature as recurring themes throughout her work.

In her latest series, Thielker created illustrated interpretations of her favorite music albums. The illustrations look like quilts, giving a homely feel to the series. “The thought is to capture the music that inspires me while I create,” she explained on her Instagram page. “I feel like imagining up record art, being free, not overworking and not overthinking is going to be fun. It’s important to create art for yourself in between client work and I’m looking forward to sharing this with you all as I go.”
