Sarah_Artist and Designer_Up the Hill Cr

Hi! My name is Sarah. I'm a illustrator, artist, designer, creative. I am a graphic designer by trade, and work with a team of architects and interior designers. I am a proud mum and wife. I love any kind of design, and currently in the process of designing our new home. Check out the blog for info.

I run everything for Up the Hill Creative. Illustrating and designing, social media, quality control, packing orders, anything and everything.  As a graphic designer and artist, I do also offer design and illustration work. Enquire below.

I love sketchy loose lines, paint and textures, woodgrain, fabric, patterns and pops of moody colour.

I have a special interest in illustrating for special memories and nostalgia. This stems from parents who collected various antiques and treasures, the stories from their childhood, enjoying finding meanings and connections, to loosing my brother and only having memories left.  

I also love designing for tees. I've always designed for tees since my childhood - hand painting characters onto tshirts for friends birthdays. I get a real hit seeing my work on clothing. My fabric products are digitally printed on demand by an awesome little company in Papamoa.
