The Dioramas of Sarah Jean Linquist

During her five-year battle with ovarian cancer, St. Louis artist Sarah Jean Linquist created a series of magical lands in diorama form and began a children's book that used the dioramas as the backdrop for a series of adventures starring a rogue Christmas present named Dolly. After Linquist died last year, her family and friends continued the project. Onward is Best: A Christmas Journey will be released as a hardcover book next weekend, but last week RFT photo intern Savannah Dodd visited Linquist's studio for a sneak preview.
