Sarah McNeil describes her work as delicate and soft secrets.
She likes how people can walk past one of her pieces and not
notice it, only to come back later and realize the wonder of
what's there.  Sarah works best in isolation (write with the door
closed, rewrite with the door open, as Stephen King says),
though outside of work time she gets outdoors to feel the wind
in her hair.  Things she needs to keep creating: tasty snacks,
tea, coffee, white paint, natural materials, and lots of sketches. 

What I love is that Sarah gives the face and initial mood of a
character, and we're left to dream the rest.
