About Sarah

Job Description :

Finding the extraordinary in the everyday.

A former opera singer, Sarah Nisbett is the creative director behind Drawn on the Way.  A self-taught live sketch artist and illustrator, Sarah loves to draw the people, fashions, pets and animals that she encounters “on the way.”

Originally from Ann Arbor, Mich., Sarah has a B.A. in art history from the University of Michigan and an M.M. in vocal performance, from Westminster Choir College in Princeton, N.J. 

She moved to New York to pursue music, and after a successful career as a professional opera singer, she decided to follow her other dream of working in advertising. Now on her third career, she continues to live in NYC where she draws people and writes for a living. And she likes doing that. A lot.

In her spare time, you can find Sarah outside riding horses (a lifelong passion), surfing at the Rockaways or working on her archery skills. If you’re looking for her inside, you might find her training Muay Thai, doing musical improv comedy at the Magnet Theater, taking in a Broadway show, visiting the Met Museum or doing a little retail therapy. When she’s not doing any of those things, she’s probably thinking about how much she loves dogs or what to cook for dinner.
