About Sabrina

Sabrina Smelko is a multi-disciplinary creative.

In the decade since she graduated from Sheridan’s BAA Illustration program (Hons), Sabrina has traversed myriad fields including tech, advertising, production and publishing. Her portfolio is as diverse as her skillset, and she continues to speak and teach on the topic as she runs her freelance creative practice from her home studio in Whistler, British Columbia.

Sabrina is also a blogger and has been sharing all things home design, lifestyle, creativity and adventure for 10 years. As an influencer with a diverse creative skillset, she works with her favourite brands to create content of all kinds! If you’d like to partner to create content, send an email.

In addition to her creative work, Sabrina teaches vinyasa flow yoga both privately and at local studios. She received her 200-hour certification at Vikasa Yoga in Thailand.

Despite all this, most people follow her on Instagram for Piper posts.
