My name is Thea Saks (aka Frau Sakra) and I live in Los Angeles. I'm largely self-taught; but in my first life, when I worked in New York as a book and scientific journal editor, I took night classes at the School of Visual Arts and Parsons School of Design. Now my home library of illustration, design, architecture, and literature helps feed my head with ideas for paintings, drawings, and digital art. 

I want each work of art to tell a story that will take you to another place--often a real place that existed in the past. While I try to make sure that my work is well informed and researched, the art is always original and drawn or painted by my own hand (including the digital art, which is drawn on a Cintiq tablet).

I have shown in LA-area galleries including Hyaena

Gallery, Copro Gallery, La Luz de Jesus Gallery, the Dark Art Emporium, Hive Gallery, Cactus Gallery, Bearded Lady's Mystic Museum, Creature Features, Cella Gallery, and 11:11 ACC, as well as Modern Eden in San Francisco, La Matadora Gallery in Joshua Tree, District VII in Detroit, Skull & Snake Tattoo Art Gallery in Berwick, Maine, and Forbidden Carnival Gallery in Chippenham, UK.

Hope you enjoy my work. Please give me feedback--I'd love to hear from you!
