Sarah Horne is an award winning Illustrator of children’s books.

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 digital, and by the power of much ramshackle pop music, and TEA, it becomes a real publishable illustration. Sarah has worked extensively on both middle-grade fiction and picture book titles. Sarah also writes and is currently developing story ideas.



Sarah occasionally produces Illustration for newspapers and magazines. She is also a dab-hand at hand-drawn typography.

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


Faber and Faber, Chicken House, Harper Collins, Macmillan, Hodder, Orchard, Simon and Schuster, Oxford University Press, Nosy Crow, Templar.

Design, Advertising and Editorial clients :

IKEA, Kew Gardens, Nike, The Guardian, Print Week, New Law Journal, Sesame Street and more.
