Hello there!

Do come in, make yourself at home!

Sarah Horne is an Illustrator and author of children’s books based in London, UK.

Known for her quirky, inky characters, Sarah works with a dip pen and ink, hand drawing her work, with real hands.  She then shifts the drawings over to the digital, and by the power of much ramshackle pop music and TEA, the piece becomes a real publishable illustration.

An Illustrator for over fifteen years, Sarah has worked extensively on young fiction and middle-grade fiction, non-fiction and picture book titles.



Occasionally Sarah produces Illustration for newspapers and magazines. Sarah is also a  hand-drawn typography fanatic!

She has been known to take on… *whispers darkly* advertising commissions!
