Sarah Jane Wright from Sarah Jane Studios shares insight into her art and her brand

OOOH! I am just so excited to share this interview with you! I have been impressed with Sarah Jane Wright from Sarah Jane Studios since the minute I ran across her art. You will simply love her, her brand and all her products. I know I do. She does so much creatively (fabric design, book illustration, successful etsy shop!) and has 3 children and yet manages to know exactly where she is headed. You might expect someone this busy to be a bit overwhelmed but I found her so calm and focused. (Did I mention she has three small children?) Using her spiritual life as her guide she radiates joy and sweetness that definitely shows in her art. I think she is one fun artist to watch, she is definitely going places!

    Hi M and SJ!
    I loved hearing Sarah Jane’s backstory and what’s coming up in the future. It’s so interesting to see all the paths that people take that get them where they are today.

    I do have a questions about the VA, though. I’m fascinated by the idea, as someone that works from a second bedroom in our home and has no physical space for an assistant. Sarah Jane, can you list the kinds of things that your VA does? I know she’s not packing/shipping, because you mentioned you have a different arrangement for fulfillment. Maybe you outlined it in your interview but I missed it!

    Thanks so much,
    Betz
    P.S. See you in KC! Can’t wait to see your new fabric collection.

    HI Betz! Yes, I have a virtual assistant, and love it! She takes care of processing all the orders, business email and ordering supplies when they are out…and keeping things in check. She lives 500 miles away…and we have phone conversations 2x a week, but mostly it’s for her to ask questions that would be faster then sending an email. It’s a great set up! I highly recommend getting help with any of the business-y things that keep you from doing the work you want to spend more time on, and for me, that’s making books and fabric!

    Thanks for another great interview. I was just thinking the other day it would be nice to watch an interview of someone who is working around small children, and the next one I watched was Sarah Jane’s! So inspirational to hear about the juggling act, so many hats Sarah Jane!

    Another enjoyable informative interview! I love the sweet retro look-what I’m creating in our new home-that Sara Jane has introduced through her art.

    Wow!! I am so glad I found this interview! THANK YOU!! I am a children’s book illustrator trying to do more licensing so the timing is perfect and I also plan on hopefully going to the quilt show to possibly meet Sarah Jane in person. :)

    Monica,
    Hey girl, I got your name right this time! :) You’re always a delight to watch in your interviews as you show genuine care and interest in your interviewees stories.

    I just watched the interview with Sarah Jane and wanted to let you both know how timely it was for me. My life is in transition and I need to make some decisions and changes. Not to go into TOO much detail, but I’m an art student, recovering from back surgery this summer, dealing with the chaos of a recent move, and have a job that I may lose in the next few months due to the economy. Anyway, one form of action I decided on is to open an Etsy shop. At this point I will only be able to start with one product which is a calendar I designed for one of my classes. Sometimes this seems premature since I only have one item to sell, but I’ve felt all along that I just have to TRY. During your interview there was discussion about needing to try. At that moment I got all teary-eyed and girly, knowing in my heart that this is something I need to do now, even if it turns out to be a flop. So thank you for a wonderfully inspiring interview to you both! Oh, and if you have any pointers for an Etsy first-time seller, I’d love to hear them!

    Hi Monica!
    No worries. The surgery has been one of those things that as fun as it has not been, it’s for the best. :) I’m really grateful to have found your site. It’s so full of great interviews and information! It’s interesting too, because now that I’ve made the decision to TRY, a door opened up that is going to help make things more possible for me. Thanks for the link to Jenna Herbut! I’ll definitely check it out!
