Dominic Barker



Sarah grew up in Derbyshire, mainly under a snow drift. She spent much of her childhood scampering in the nearby fields with a few goats. Then she decided to be sensible and studied Illustration at Falmouth College of Arts, graduating in 2001.

She has illustrated for many different projects including an ad campaign for Kew Gardens entitled 'Plantastic Play'. She has also undertaken commission from The Guardian and The Independent newspapers. Sarah now specialises in funny, inky illustration and words for children's fiction and picture books.

Sarah likes to paint on very big canvas. She loves funny detail, colour, music, dreams and big open spaces.

Sarah now works from a studio on a hill in Forest Hill, London.
