Sarah grew up in London. During her teenage years she was asked by a family friend to draw their house as a memento as they were moving away. By word of mouth she was soon receiving similar commissions and ended up drawing many of the fine houses in North London.
She studied at Chelsea school of Art and Brighton University where she graduated with a degree in Illustration.
On leaving art school she started working for many of the architectural, beauty, home and financial magazines based in London. As a result of this exposure she went on to work with top design and advertising groups and has enjoyed a great variety of commissions from prestigious clients and opportunities to travel around the world. A notable job came from London Underground to create a permanent installation of eighteen full height panels lining the platforms at Shadwell Station on The East London Line. Her reportage illustrations portray the richness of The East End, from pubs, market stalls and tenement blocks to majestic tall ships, and Hawksmoor Churches.
In recent years Sarah has also been working on Children’s Books. Walker Books in London, have published two books, both written and illustrated by Sarah as well as the ‘Bonnie’ series of reading books which she has illustrated, written by Bel Mooney. Knopf at Random House in New York have published three of Sarah’s picture books written by respected American authors. She gives talks and workshops to schools and libraries about her work and has book signings at children’s bookshops.
Sarah lives in London with her family.
She is represented by The Artworks Illustration Agency in London, Mendola Artists in New York and Art Liason in Japan.
