About me

Hello! My name is Sakura Siegel. I am a freelance artist from New Jersey and currently living in Florida. Art has been my passion since I was a child. I use art as a way to express my emotions and life experiences. My preferred method of drawing is using the app Procreate on my iPad Pro. For bigger projects, I use my Wacom Cintiq. I am currently working for Slice of Culture, which has been an amazing opportunity.

Feel free to contact me for commissions or work!
