We’re profiling some of Australia’s biggest content creators to see what really makes them tick. Saria’s bright art and even brighter personality bring a smile to everyone who knows her. We chatted to discover more about her art and her stream.
Tell us about yourself and your stream name inspiration.
My name is Saria, taken from the cute little elf girl from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I’m not as small but pretty close – I’m only a five-foot tall Scottish lass. And the ‘Arts’ is pretty self explanatory – I have been drawing since I was seven years old!
A Scottish lass you say?
I was born in Scotland and spent the first 10 years of my life there. I moved to Australia with my family and have been struggling with the heat ever since.
What are the most notable differences between Scotland and Australia?
It’s definitely greener and more rainy in Scotland, which isn’t a problem if all your hobbies are indoors (like mine!). Australia was a bit of a shock when everything here can seemingly kill you, from the spiders to the snakes to the drop bears…
When did you start to stream?
I started almost a year and a half ago and I’ve been in love with my community ever since. I’ve made so many great friendships through streaming and can’t imagine myself doing anything else.
What do you usually stream?
I play mostly League of Legends and am a part of the League Partner Program (LPP). I get a lot of support from Riot Games (who make the game) and free stuff too. I have a desk cat called Rusty who often likes to purr into my mic and make guest appearances on camera (especially with her big cat booty!).
What’s your favourite beverage?
I’m pretty much addicted to English breakfast tea and will get cranky when I don’t get reminded to drink it while it’s hot (which is often).
What’s something you want people to know about you?
I graduated with an Advanced Diploma in Game Art. I know I want to combine both art and games in my life and career, and I do that currently with my freelance art and streaming. Also – my favourite animal is a hedgehog.
Describe your art in three words.
Detailed, glowy and colourful.
What are your plans for the future?
Become a full-time artist and streamer. I would love to be known for my art and be able sell it worldwide!
