Sarah Epstein is an Australian author, illustrator and designer who grew up in suburban Sydney and now lives in Melbourne. She spent her childhood drawing, daydreaming and cobbling together picture books at the kitchen table. A creative all-rounder, she achieved her design degree from the University of Western Sydney and embarked on a 25-year design career before returning to her first loves of writing and illustrating.

Sarah’s illustration style combines hand-drawn sketches with digital colouring and collage, focusing on bright colours, humour and a sense of fun. Sarah is a SCBWI member, a former admin of the 52-week Illustration Challenge, and a current admin of The Illustration Station. Her first YA novel was published by Walker Books Australia and Walker Books UK in 2018 and was shortlisted for The Readings Young Adult Book Prize.
