sillysarasue's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Artisan Crafts
United States
I am in artist living in Austin Texas working in resin, clay and shrink plastic. I sell at different conventions in the states. Typically if I can't attend I sell my jewelry but occasionally you will see my robots for sale as well.

I am the president of ASFA, the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists and also work on other science fiction conventions in various roles. In 2012 I chaired ArmadilloCon, Austin's local literary science fiction convention, and was the head of advertising for LonestarCon in 2013 and was head of art programming for LonCon 3, the Deputy Division head for marketing at MidAmeriCon 2 and am now in charge of Publications at Dublin 2019. I have edited and designed the Artist showcase for Renovation, Chicon, Loncon 3 and Sasquan.

I designed the Hugo base for MidAmeriCon 2 and have ideas for others. Was on HGTV on a number of craft segments of various shows as well.

Showcase can be found here.


Hugo base designers Sara and Vincent- and the Hugo
A picture of Vincent Villafranca and I, we designed this year's base for the Hugo awards.  The video they showed at the Hugos is on youtube:…

Bronze base.  
WSFS Young Adult Award
The young adult award I created that was presented at Worldcon 76 at the Hugo ceremony.  

Resin, alcohol ink, and wood.    

Simple step by step on youtube:…
New pendants!
I have yet to add beads obviously, but got some of these great pendant blanks and thought they would look amazing with a space theme above the silver.  And gosh they exceeded my expectations!  Ink, stains, and resin with a small amount of acrylic paint.
Hugo base designer for 2018 Hugo
I have teamed up with Vincent Villafranca to design the Hugo base for Worldcon 76 which will be held in San Jose in August.   
Lace crown for birthday
So one of the neighbors daughters had a birthday party and I didn't want to go empty handed.  So I stiffened up some lace and made this crown for her.  Painted with acrylics with a number of rhinestones and buttons added.


Resin Jewelry
A pendant like one seen on my page. Includes shipping. Pick the colors you would like and any other specifics to embed in the resin.
Your very own robot- standing figure. You can pick one of the ones that I have done before or give me a theme. Includes shipping.

If you want to thank me...

Draw/sketch/sculpt/photograph me a little something and send me a picture and I will post it on my wall. From my page you can tell I am slightly partial to fantasy, robots, cats, rocketships, cutesy steampunk (yeah i know that isn't really a thing, but why not?) If you want more specifics, I like the color green, and my favorite artist is Brian Froud, my house is full of pictures of cool doors I have taken pictures of. If you want to recreate one of my pieces in your style, that would be cool too. :)


I give points as thank yous for watches and the like as a thank you. If you ask it seems like it cheapens the gesture.


I will give points as thank yous, that is all.

I hate to see all my comments asking for points, instead of people who genuinely want to communicate with me. It makes me sad :(
