Sarita was born in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where she began drawing at an early age.
Her career in illustration grew from her childhood interest in art and comic books.
She continued her art education at San Jose State University's School of Art and Design in California,
where she graduated with a BFA in Animation and Illustration in 2007.
She worked in Seattle, Washington for ArenaNet after graduating from university and gained valuble
experience working on the game, Guild Wars 2 as an Environment Artist.
She eventually moved back to Dubai and began working as a full-time illustrator and concept artist.
Currently, she is working at a casual gaming studio and will have two ipad games releasing this year.
In addition to gaming, Sarita also has a desire to illustrate children's books and will have her first e-book published
Sarita's mixed-media hyper-fantasy artwork uses bright, multi-layered and often luminous surfaces
to create a visual depth that is both appealing to our sensibilities and intricate to the eye.
Her materials include traditional media such as gouache, acrylic, watercolor and colored pencil
seamlessly mixed with digital imagery and Photoshop.
As a technophile, her interests include video
games, the syfy channel, and the effects of technology on human interaction. Her artwork also often
explores themes of fantasy within the context of personal narrative and storytelling. Sarita's work
has been described as having a storybook quality with a "child-like" spirit to it.
