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 has always been influenced by storytelling, drawing inspiration from her Grandfather’s collection of old books and Japanese artwork. She has always possessed a strong desire to create a world of her own, fuelled buy nature, animation and personal experience.
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.
