Hello friends, welcome to You Made Me Like You!
My name is Sara, I’m a 29 year old Canadian living in Brooklyn, New York. I started this site in March of 2014 having thought about it for a while but finally taking the plunge after getting a much-needed shove from two very wise friends. I see You Made Me Like You as an opportunity to visually and conceptually bring together my love for art (of all kinds) and style – a topic which has always fascinated me but the idea of which has drastically changed since moving to New York.
Here’s a little more about me:
-My first art “job” was a co-op placement at the AGO in OAC (yes, that is grade 13)
-I was born in Toronto to Mexican parents
-All of my extended family lives in Mexico; I travel there as often as I can
-I did ballet from when I was 5 all through University and I still love it
-Lately, I’ve been cheating on red wine with bourbon
-I love and can’t resist anything with an evil eye on it
-I did my undergrad in Art History/Philosophy at Queen’s University in Ontario
-I have a Master’s degree from NYU in Visual Arts Administration
-I worked at MoMA the Museum of Modern Art
-I could eat loaf cake all day (especially chocolate or banana bread)
-My favorite love story is “Like Water for Chocolate” by Laura Esquivel
-I speak most of the romantic languages (French, Spanish, Italian)
-My favorite works of art hanging in my apartment are by artists Nicolas di Genova and Jack Henry
-My spirit animal is and always has been Cookie Monster
