Sarah H. Wilkinson is a renaissance woman.

She is a painter, sculptor, poet, musician and advocate for healthy living.

Often there isn’t a free moment in her day – that’s how she likes it.

“I’m trying my hand at writing a film and a television series,” she says. “I was trained in creative writing. I want to go to the next level. I want to write it first as a book and make it a series.

Wilkinson has lived in New Mexico for eight years.

She has since immersed herself in the local film and television industry through makeup.

“I didn’t come here for the film industry. I didn’t know it existed,” she said. “I have a cosmetology license and this lady asked me if I wanted to do a reality TV show. Thanks to that, I was selected to do hair on a production. People kept saying asking me to be a model. I was open to doing photo shoots, then I got into acting.

Wilkinson had found his niche within the industry. She was constantly surrounded by creatives working for a common goal.

“I have always been interested in theatre, cinema and television. I did plays here and there and wrote a bit,” she says. “It’s really about creative expression. When I write, I want to tell a story that connects with other people.

When Wilkinson writes, she envisions complete diversity in the cast.

“The premise behind standing out too much will change because of diverse actors,” she says. “It’s important to stand out. I want to give others the opportunity to do so.

Wilkinson’s journey in film is a facet of his life.

In 2004 she started her holistic health journey where she became a master herbalist.

“I try to get people to adapt their way of life,” she says. “I teach that healthy eating and healthy food doesn’t have to taste bad. I joined a cooking apprenticeship.

Another goal is to open a small cafe or bistro, as Wilkinson is an amateur chef.

“It’s important to open a cafe or a center for people to learn about what goes into their food or how it’s grown,” she says. “It’s a beautiful trip.”

Wilkinson aims to see people succeed in all areas. Here’s a little more about her:

1 “I’m a professional actress and model represented by Tina Presley at Presley Talent. As of 2022, I’m eligible for SAG, which means I’m still non-union but can join at any time. I work on a Series regular on a TV show, as well as a feature film as a lead character I also write, so provided I get the funding, I can produce content with more roles than I can be proud of. to play.

2 “I am a holistic health practitioner and master herbalist, as well as a cosmetologist and would like, again with funding, to open a unique wellness center that caters to the individual on a personal level. mental/emotional/spiritual through food, pleasure and entertainment, holistically.

3 “I study traditional African spirituality as a way to get in touch with my ancestral roots and learn more about the cultures I come from, but I recognize everything as well as a lack of religion and spirituality, because we we are all connected and sharing this world together, hopefully one day, in peace.

4 “I love gardening and I like to propagate vegetation to help increase the abundance of beautiful plants and trees around us. (I prefer planting female trees as they produce fruit as there is already a significant amount of male trees, which produce pollen.)”

5 “I’m left-handed and one of my hidden talents is that I can write backwards in cursive as I can write forwards. I have been able to do this since I was a child. It makes things fun, as most things in life should aim to be.
