Sarah Jane Docker |
Freelance Children's Media Illustrator

Sarah is an award winning freelance illustrator from a small coastal town in the North West of England.

After graduating from University of Central Lancashire in 2017, she began working full-time as a children's book illustrator near Manchester while also taking on freelance illustration projects. April 2019 saw her transitioning full time into freelance work, specialising in children’s media.


Since then Sarah has been commissioned by a range of clients; from larger brands such as Glossybox (The Hut Group), to London based publishing houses and international authors. She has also dedicated a lot of time to creating personal bespoke artwork for private clients.

Much of Sarah's work is inspired by nature, the idea of seeing life through new eyes each day, and memories and jokes from childhood. Her passion for illustration and making people smile shows in her work, through subject and colour and has seen her work described as “Eccentric, excitable and whimsical” with “A lot of heart and a gift for expressing feeling”.
