I’m Sarah Watkins, i’m an illustrator living in the heart of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Our whole life has been spent walking the fells and dales around Yorkshire.


My long suffering husband knows too well how distracted I am when we’re out walking, my heads buzzing with the overload of amazing ideas that are around us. We could walk the same path week after week but there will always be something new and unique each day.


My vibrant designs and characterful illustrations feature woodland motifs, creatures of the sea, flora and fauna, and a friendly bear or two, I love drawing animals, they can tell a story so well. 


I’m really fascinated with woodland animals and insects at the moment. During lockdown I walked in our woods every night after work. When you really stop and look at the area around you, you see there are hundreds of tiny creatures and plants, all intricate in their own way, and all filling my head with endless ideas for my illustrations.
