Sarah Deragon in her own words:
With influences as diverse as My Little Ponies to Strawberry Shortcake, I’ve always loved toys and how they can instantly bring back feelings and memories associated with childhood. I’ve always enjoyed doing arts and crafts, and had recently started experimenting with spray paint. One day, I spray painted a toy dinosaur, named him Frederick after my grandpa, and my imagination just soared as I started this whimsical journey with Frederick as my tour guide. Now, after many months, I have a collection I want to share with people, to make them smile and to inspire them to explore their creativity. All hand lettering was generously done by my good friend and fine artist, Lisa Congdon. Frederick and his partner, Lewis, are going to be parents in a children's book I am working on called, 17 Saturdays, which documents family activities with Frederick and Lewis and their kids. It will be for sale in 2016. Sarah Deragon is a professional photographer who owns Portraits To The People based in San Francisco, CA.
Lisa and I first connected because we are both members of Makeshift Society and she and her wife agreed to be in my photo project, The Identity Project. Then we became fast friends and I was able to photograph Lisa in her studio on two different occasions. It is a blast collaborating with Lisa because she's so freaking talented. I love her work and this art show is a big dream come true for me!
