Visual Art – Detroit
Sareytales are the original designs and illustrations inspired by real text messages I have received during my online dating experiences. After years of working as a graphic designer and art director for agencies in New York and Detroit, I decided to put my talents to work for a more personal cause. Combining my passion for art and design with a portfolio of dating fiascos that would rival most, Sareytales transform the creepy, cruel and more often than not obscene messages I receive on dating apps such as Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Match, Bumble, Tinder and Jdate into works of art. What began as a fun little project of crafting clever designs from cruel words has turned into something much larger. Sareytales has since evolved into a platform which empowers other women to stand up to the online bullying, anti-semitism and cyber-sexual harassment culture of online-dating. Sareytales is turning ugly into art, one text at a time. Follow @sareytales on Instagram and Twitter for daily stories.
