Sarah Dennis is a freelance illustrator and artist living in Bristol. Growing up in the heart of Sussex, she spent much of her childhood life drawing and experimenting with art. Sarah completed a degree in illustration in 2008 at the University of The West of England, where she developed her drawing and applied her skills to children’s books, editorials, designs and animations.
Her work now combines traditional scherenschnitte (paper cutting) with collage. Sarah’s work exemplifies the beauty of nature in fairy tales and whimsical childhood dreams, telling classic poems and folk tales through the medium of paper. Each piece is individually hand-cut using a craft knife to reveal exquisite, delicate detail within the illustration.
