Sara LaPell is an artist based in Glens Falls, New York. Studying at SUNY Oneonta under a dual degree in Media Studies and Computer Art, she found inspiration in the art of storytelling, employing the vibrant visual elements of film, television, and popular culture in her illustrations and writing.

While an undergraduate student, Sara’s interest in visual storytelling led her to the 2017 web series Battenkill Inspired. As a writer, editor, and camera operator, she worked with the Crandall Library Folklife Center to explore the art, culture, and natural beauty of the Battenkill region.

Sara is currently pursuing a master’s degree at the Bread Loaf School of English at Middlebury College.
