Sarah Bellisario

I am a freelance and published illustrator, art teacher, academic researcher and compulsive children’s book collector, with an MA in Children’s book illustration (Cambridge School of Art).

A lover of fine lines, pattern, colour and detail, I love taking inspiration from different cultures and have a passion for anything esoteric.


I am a ‘Doctorate of Fine Art’ research student at UH. Exploring magical female healers through British/European history and considering the materiality of magical objects and artifacts, through a historical, sociocultural anthropological, auto-ethnographical and creative lens. With a particular interest in how magical curative objects play a part in transformation and healing through symbolic engagement.


Getting lost in a good book, whether it be diving into a great story or losing myself in the detail of a beautiful illustration has always been one of my favourite preoccupations. I am a lover of the strange and unusual and obsessive researcher of magical objects and healing practices. Whenever possible I am also a far flung traveller and hoarder of objects and scrappy travel journals.


I create both hand drawn and digital illustration and my work includes large scale murals, web apps, stationery, wallpaper, wall stickers, fashion textiles, magazine illustration, logos and children’s books. I work with clients both in the UK and internationally. 

Clients include: Dove, NHS, Clementine App, Mutha Hood, CMC playground (UK) + Hello Kitty, KOKKA, Slinky Touch, Haneda Airport, Hankyu Umeda Dept Store (Japan) 

Get in touch: I also exhibit and sell my work, and love to produce bespoke work on commission. To contact me about work or research please email
