About Sarah: Sarah Edmonds is a self taught illustrator and designer based in Worthing. She is a farmer’s daughter from the Welsh borders, where she spent much of her childhood adventuring around hedgerows and forests which fed her imagination very well indeed!

Her portfolio includes hand drawn maps, mischievous puns, colourful alphabets and curious characters, produced for clients such as children’s publishers, museums, national parks and charities. To create her work she combines the hand drawn with the digital, enjoying bold colours, hand made textures and wobbly lines full of warmth and character. Much of Sarah’s inspiration comes from the natural world, people watching and mid century design.

In 2013 she was awarded a summer artist residency with Kultivera in Tranås, Sweden, and since then has worked freelance as an illustrator. Alongside her commissioned and personal projects and exhibitions, Sarah produces her own collections of playful illustrated gifts.
