Sarah at work in the studio
Growing up beside an allotment & overlooked by woodland Sarah has always been surrounded by wildlife. Strong memories of building grass hides, hand rearing hedgehogs & watching fox clubs play together in the snow are just some of the happy memories that form the basis to her growing collection of paper goods.
In a sometimes chaotic world Sarah's aim is to create a moment of calm. Using subtle tones and delicate line drawings her designs bring joy & simplicity to modern day life. Each image is created from her home studio in rural Leicestershire, beginning life as a hand drawn idea in a sketchbook and coloured digitally Sarah's style combines traditional & contemporary methods.
Sarah received a First class honours in Graphic Design & Illustration in 2013. Learning techniques to hand make books & the process of picture book illustration enhanced her passion for Children's book design. She has self published eight narratives and strongly believes that everyone should be given the opportunity to learn to read.
Sarah now runs The Paper Creative alongside her part time job in a Rural Gallery. She is lucky to still be surrounded with wildlife and on any days off can be spotted in the countryside, hunting for nature (and inspiration) in its natural habitat.
