Sarah Bellisario : Designer & Illustrator
Design House & Brand Director of Sas and Yosh
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. A lover of fine lines, pattern and colour, I love taking inspiration from different cultures and have a passion for Japanese art.
Doctorate of Fine Art research student at UH looking at female healers though British history. Considering historical, social, religious, political aspects as well as depictions of female healers in art and researching healing objects. DFA is practice based so I am creating artwork to go alongside my research work and also in response to my studies.
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.
Whenever possible I am also a far flung traveller and hoarder of objects and scrappy travel journals.
I like to create my work with a sense of spontaneity sometimes creating dozens of colourful backgrounds before I choose which ones to work into, creating images with a mix of different media. Creating both hand drawn and digital illustration.
I create work for large scale murals, web apps, stationery, wallpaper, wall stickers, fashion textiles, magazine illustration and children’s books. For clients both in the UK and internationally
I also exhibit and sell my work, and love to produce bespoke work on commission
