Sasha Sapp is a Philly-raised teacher, visual artist, language enthusiast, and connection-seeker. After graduating in 2017 from Colorado College with a BA in Comparative Literature, Sasha decided to roam the world teaching and making art. For some time, she taught English in Santa Cruz do Sul, Brazil, before returning to the United States.
Her work is who she is: incomplete and frazzled, yet firm and intentional. This is directly reflected in her frequented subject matter which features pensive yet distraught women (mostly Filipina and Black, like herself). She takes this approach to directly share herself with the world and transmit it onto paper.
Sasha mainly works in pencil and pen, though some feature charcoal and pastels. The connection between the hand, the tool, and sheet of paper has fulfilled her since she began to teach herself how to draw over 15 years ago.
Sasha currently teaches English in Pennsylvania and hopes to do so in Japan in the near future. In the meantime, you can find her blazing trails on her beloved PT-4500.
