Year 11 meet children’s illustrator Sara Ogilvie

Today our Y11 GCSE Art students had the opportunity to have a zoom chat with one of Britain’s most popular children’s illustrators working today.
Sara Ogilvie, who studied Illustration at Edinburgh College of Art alongside our Head of Art Eve, is probably best known for illustrating ‘The Detective Dog’ written by Julia Donaldson.
As an illustrator Sara’s creations have included editorial illustrations, images for design projects, book covers, children’s picture book illustrations and advertising campaigns.
She has also worked on several children’s books by Anna Kemp including ‘Dogs Don’t Do Ballet’, ‘The Worst Princess’ and ‘Sir Lilypad’ as well as the ‘Storey Street novel’ series by Phil Earle.
As a printmaker her screen prints and lithographs have been exhibited across the UK and abroad, including USA, Canada, Poland, Japan, Korea and France. She has won many awards for her work.
