Rue Sakayama is a multidisciplinary artist and photographer living and working in Providence, RI. She graduated from RISD FAV (Rhode Island School of Design, Film Animation Video) with a Bachelor in Fine Arts in 2006. She is a contract commercial photographer with clients ranging from small independent artists and designers to larger commercial companies. Sakayama's artistic practice has a strong focus on craft spanning multiple mediums, from photography to textile and fiber arts. 

She uses her art practice to explore the spaces-in-between, the feelings of otherness that are experienced in a society that often lacks a nuanced viewpoint. She examines this otherness with a commitment to aesthetics, levity as a way to invite the viewer in. The first step in Sakayama's practice is to ensure that her work is visually compelling in composition, shape, and color. Though she embraces formalism in this way, she is also compelled by the stories that can be imagined by the provocative nature of her work.
