"Sareytales: The Art of Online Dating" is a project I started two years ago after I received a particularly cruel text message from a guy I met on the dating app Jswipe. His hurtful words inspired me to start creating artwork showing the creepy, cruel and misogynistic messages I had been receiving on various dating apps for many years. What began as a fun little project of crafting clever designs from cruel words has turned into something much larger. Sareytales has evolved into a platform that empowers other women to stand up to the online bullying, anti-Semitism, and cyber-sexual harassment culture of online dating. Join me as I turn ugly into art, one text at a time. My artwork (prints/greeting cards/gift wrap) can be purchased on my etsy shop (esty.com/shop/sareytales). Follow @Sareytales on Instagram for more feminist art, and be sure to visit sareytales.com to view upcoming events, exhibits and artist collaborations.
