a little bit about me

drawing, creating and design

Hello, I'm Sarah Anne and I create simple, honest + sustainable prints, illustrations + designs.

Since being very young I have always loved drawing and creating, making, exploring and learning. In 2016 a resolution to do a drawing a day, then two years living in Scandinavia, led me to create my own calm, natural illustrations and Sarah Anne Draws was born.

Sustainability, natural calm, simplicity and happiness are at the heart of what I do, I don’t think that we should create anything new without first thinking where it comes from, how it is made, and what might happen to it when it is no longer needed – for this reason all my work uses renewable or recyclable materials, sustainable inks or dyes, and local suppliers. 

I work out of a small home office in York - where I live with my photographer and video making husband - and it is where most of my designs are created.  My background is in textiles, product development, process and product engineering and I love to collaborate with others to create sustainable products and designs. 

As well as creating cards and prints I also create logos and designs for small businesses, offer graphic design and illustration services to individuals and complete custom designs and creations for those who want something a little different too.

If you'd like to hear a little bit more about my journey then head over to my podcast with York Creatives, or you can see a little clip of it here.

New collection coming soon…

Days to look forward to, with simple celebrations, and room for hope as we move into the spring
