ABOUT
SARAH GIBB

Sarah is an English Illustrator based in Wandsworth, London. She studied at St Martins before completing her MA in sequential Illustration at Brighton College of Art.

As a child Sarah fell in love with the delicate line and gentle humour in the work of Maurice Sendak, Arthur Rackham, and Ronald Searle, and with the explosion of colour in the prints of Degas and Klimt hung on the walls of the family home. Her work also echoes the rich and dramatic sense of space and texture found the illustrations of Alice and Martin Provensen, another childhood favourite.

 

After landing regular spots in the Telegraph and Elle Magazine, Sarah's breakthrough came when she illustrated the cover of the best selling 'Nanny Diaries' in 2002, and her artwork was featured on posters across the London Underground network. This lead to commissions for Sue Townsend's Adrian Mole series, Harrods Christmas Window Display, Crabtree and Evelyn packaging and book covers for the Emily Windsnap Series.

More recently Sarah's mix of classic drawing and contemporary design have featured in the stunning fairytale imagery of Rapunzel (Harper Collins), Beauty and the Beast, The Princess who had no Kingdom and The Princess who had no Fortune (Orchard)

Recent book covers include; Series' of titles for Jo Jo Moyes, Catherine Alliot, Holly Webb, Giovanni Fletcher and Alexandra Brown.

Sleeping Beauty (Harper Collins) is due to be published in October 2015
