BIOGRAPHY

Sarah Legault (London, ON) was born in 1982 in Orangeville Ontario, but grew up in Kincardine. Currently she lives in London, Ontario where she specializes in illustration, acrylic painting, creepy doll making, and photography (often with computer manipulation). In 2005 she painted a Harley Davidson hardtail motorcycle which was later featured on television and in magazines. It went on to win multiple awards all over North America for best-in-show and best paint. Later in 2005 she completed the Steel Canvas Murals airbrushing course at ‘Goodeve Studios’ in Owen Sound, Ontario taught by world renowned airbrush painter, Vince Goodeve.


In 2008 she started a publishing and merchandising company under the name The Bird Behind The Mask to self-publish her comic series: Vincent P. Usher, Twig Boy, Cereal Killers, and This Is What Really Happened. She debuted Vincent P. Usher at the 2009 Fan Expo Horror/Comic/Sci-Fi convention in Toronto, and on Hallowe’en of 2009 she had her first book signing with Chapters/Indigo as a published author and illustrator. The Library of Archives in Ottawa has subsequently requested and added Vincent P. Usher and Twig Boy into their archives for future generations to enjoy.


She recently worked with her friend Vincent Marcone from My Pet Skeleton on his next book and animated film project, The Lady ParaNorma, where she played the main character of Lady ParaNorma. The film features narration and vocals by musical legend Peter Murphy (Bauhaus) and has been receiving praise from film directors such as Guillermo del Toro and Clive Barker. Also, Sarah had her first role as producer for Canadian ambient/goth band Johnny Hollow for their first music video This Hollow World. In the video you can also see some of her dolls and masks.


Sarah is a resident art doll marker at Dollirium Art Doll Emporium in London, Ontario, Canada where you can see her dolls on display year-round with other spooky international doll makers. She is also working on completing her first novel entitled The Dream Theatre.


After working on a series of short animations of her comic book series; Vincent P. Usher, Twig Boy and Cereal Killers through the name The Bird Behind the Mask, Sarah went on to create her first stop motion animated short film titled Dear Love (roughly 11mins in duration). In these projects she played the role of writer, director, producer, set designer, character designer  and cinematographer/illustrator. Dear Love is currently being prepared for film festivals.
