Biography

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.
