Sarah Davis illustrated her first picture book in 2008, and in 2010 quit her day job and began illustrating and designing books full time. Since then, she has illustrated 37 books, designed 11, and been shortlisted for 33 major awards in Australia and New Zealand.
Sarah’s first book as author, illustrator AND designer will be released by HarperCollins in 2019. She is also proud to be an ambassador for Room to Read, and the Illustrator Coordinator for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (Australia East/NZ), also known as SCBWI.
