I'm Sarah, an illustrator based in Bristol, UK.


I make work inspired by my surroundings and the joys of the everyday. With a focus on places, people and wildlife, I enjoy visiting new places with my sketchbook documenting different cultures and ways of life. My work uses a combination of hand drawn and digital drawing, incorporating textures from old print rubbings whilst using a strong colour palette.
