Just as her name suggests, Sareka Unique’s art is distinctively her own- and filled with happy bright pops of color. Sareka’s focus is on surface pattern design and she can turn an ordinary item into a kaleidoscope of fun (kind of like stickers!).
Sareka’s Instagram is filled with bright designs and inspiring messages that capture her true Girl Boss nature. In addition to her pattern design hustle, Sareka mentors other creatives to help them build their brand!
She creates designs that seamlessly transfer from canvas, to notebooks… to basically anything you can imagine!
