ABOUT SARAH DAVIS

  • Sarah Davis illustrated her first picture book in 2008, and in 2010 she quit her day job and began illustrating books full time. Since then, she has illustrated 37 books and been shortlisted for 30 major awards in Australia and New Zealand. Her first book as author/illustrator will be released by HarperCollins in 2017. Now she’s lucky enough to spend her days drawing wicked pirates, crazy llamas, cowardly dogs and other strange and wonderful things, and calling it “work”. She is totally ruined for any other career, and will hopefully never have a “real job” ever again.  She has an Honours degree in literature, and her love of language and narrative underpins her illustration work. She works across a range of media and is constantly experimenting with new ways to tell stories visually. She is an experienced presenter and in great demand as a speaker at schools, festivals and universities throughout Australia and internationally. She is an ambassador for Room to Read, and the Illustrator Coordinator for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (Australia East/NZ) Visit her website at www.sarah-davis.org
