Sami Austin is the artist behind Permission to Grow's beautiful guest caricatures, she is a middle school English teacher, and artist.

She loves to walk through the pines and draw strangers in Flagstaff, AZ where she lives with her fiancé, Ari and grey cat, Pyshka.

When she is not giving thirteen-year-olds the evil eye or reading another Young Adult Fiction novel, she is usually cuddling with Pyshka or showing Ari off at Sprouts. 

Message her on Instagram to get quotes on commissioned paintings, sketches, and portraits.
