Sarah’s mum always said it was a blessing how paper and a pencil could keep her quiet and out of mischief for hours. Drawing has been a lifelong habit that has seen her through careers in corporate design, children’s book design and now as a successful illustrator . . . and illustrating is what she loves doing best. Sarah lives in Sussex with her husband, Peter, her young son, Mathew, and her utterly mad terrier, Tess, who keeps guard as she draws.
