About me

My name is Zoe Saunders and I am a freelance artist and children's book illustrator based in Cheshire, UK.


I have always had a love of artistry. I love to sketch, paint and create sweet characters. I am particularly fascinated by animals, both real and magical, and love the detailed setting of nature and foliage. I create my artwork using either traditional pen and watercolor, or with my iPad Pro and apple pencil. 

I have worked for authors both in the UK and far away lands, creating bespoke illustrations for their precious stories.
Children's book illustration and design is my passion, and my aim is to not only provide authors with beautiful illustrations for their picture books, but to also provide a friendly, stress-free experience, completed in a timely manner. 

Each step of the way we will work together, to create the book of your dreams. 

I have also worked on projects such as business logos, public house signs, pet food packaging, and private commissions. 

I am a full member of the Society of Children's Book Authors and Illustrators (SCBWI) and also a member of the Association of Illustrators (AOI).


I was thrilled to gain an honorary mention in the 2018 'SCBWI Undiscovered Voices Competition' anthology. 

Please feel free to get in touch to discuss any project you have.
