Sarah Allen is an illustrator and designer based in Melbourne, Australia.
Hi! I grew up drawing and making things in suburban Melbourne and then graduated from Ballarat University’s BA Visual Arts (Drawing) program. In 2010, after a decade working as a web designer in Australia, I moved to beautiful, tropical Laos and worked in marketing roles supporting local handicraft producers and artisans. Inspired by my surroundings and the people I met, I began drawing again.
After five years away, I returned home to Melbourne in 2015, working as a freelance illustrator. With clients in the children's publishing, editorial and paper markets, my artwork is suitable for any client that needs joyful, colourful art. Clients include Usborne Publishing, SagaCity Media, VicSuper and Department of Education and Training.
I start all projects with plenty of drawing to explore the subject matter. I then work using a combination of Illustrator, Photoshop and hand-made collage. I'm available for illustration commissions and art licensing and welcome new inquiries.
