Name: Sarah Carney
City: Ames, Iowa

Lindy Hop Experience: I’ve been a lindy hopper since 2001

Art: I’ve been an artist my whole life and my favorite subjects have always been people. While my heart lies in pencil drawings, I began to experiment with digital art in the past 6 years or so. I never would have considered dancing if I hadn’t gone to see my jazz band instructor performing in a swing band when I was 17. I took the 30 minute drop-in lesson and I was hooked! Eleven years later, it’s great fun to combine two of my great loves – art and dance.

Expression: I’ve always expressed myself through drawing and adding dance to my life opened up a whole world of movement.  It’s fun to try and capture how Lindy Hop makes me feel.

How to get a piece of your art: I take commissions – get in touch and we’ll collaborate.

I love Sarah’s style. Willa Mae, Leon, Lucille, and Frankie are so effing adorable!! I remember stumbling upon the images about 8 months back and just falling in love with them. Clearly the dancers are having a fabulous time – just look at those adorable faces, killer hair, and sweet dance moves!


Don’t forget to stop and enjoy the Art!
