Sadia Bies (they/them) is a Philadelphia based multimedia artist whose work focuses on queerness, disability, horror, magic, and the impossible. They are interested in telling messy, complicated stories that are open to personal interpretation.
Sadia spends most of their time admiring their cats, wearing pajamas, and thinking a bit too hard about bugs. They are a horror enthusiast who is still awaiting the day they wake up transformed into a cockroach.
They have worked as a professional painter and illustrator for over fourteen years, starting by working at Artists for Humanity, a Boston based nonprofit where they were a studio artist, and later became a mentor for other young artists.
Sadia became interested in rpgs through their experience with larp at The Wayfinder Experience. They have been designing games for nine years, for campers at the camp they got their start, to running largescale events with Event Horizon, to creating larps meant to be played with intimate groups at home.
