Sarah Jane Stoll is the founder of Stollhaus design studio and blog. She graduated summa cum laude from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2017 with a BFA in painting.

“I strip design down to its bare essentials.”
While attending art school, Sarah was surprised when her Business Intelligence teacher from Johns Hopkins said “Art isn’t a business.” However, Sarah discovered it the most important class she took in art school. Creative entrepreneurs need to be financially literate, so Sarah started a financial portion of the Stollhaus blog to educate creatives and those who want to start a small business.

Sarah is the mind behind the lifestyle authority, Stollhaus. Her goal is to keep you up to date with the latest design trends. She is a conscientious organizer and interior design perfectionist. Living in rural New England, Sarah is inspired by the simple, historical Puritan style because it strips design down to its bare essentials. Since New England is the cradle of American history, it hosts a timeless simplicity that is a very contemporary way of living.

Sarah is currently leading a campaign to raise awareness of Global Hunger because she wants to assist families in need. In order to do this, she is working with Filling in the Blanks to host virtual food drives. She has chosen to hold virtual food drives because they limit human contact. Sarah hopes food donations will assist families struggling in the wake of COVID-19 because many people across the nation lack financial stability.
In addition to supporting her community, environmental conservation is at the heart of her life work. Sarah advocates environmental conservation through her work because she is passionate about fighting ecological crisis. She hopes to donate 10% of each Stollhaus print sale to a local environmental action non-profit so the funds would directly protect the environment. Currently, Stollhaus aims to support Save the Sound because this organization works to restore Connecticut’s shoreline.
