Zoe Sadler

Zoe’s love of reading fairytales and her penchant for an old fashioned dip pen and ink inspire her to create her beautifully illustrated children’s picture books.

Brought up on a small Scottish Croft in rural Aberdeenshire, Zoe has a degree in illustration from Dundee University’s renowned Duncan and Jordanstone College of Art. Being cursed with a problematic book obsession (she has far too many children’s books) lead her to a post grad in Publishing at the University of Plymouth. Following this Zoe worked as an illustrator and book designer at a London book publisher.

Zoe now works as a children’s book author and illustrator, from her studio in the picturesque and inspiring Isle of Wight. She writes her own children’s books and her third book ‘Chasing Butterflies‘ was  published in June 2018.

When not covered in black ink or with dip pen in hand, Zoe can most often be found drinking Earl Grey and reading a book. She has a cat called Mouse, who features in her latest book. She also likes to get outside as much as she can and is often spotted out and about in her red wellies walking her black lab ‘Wilson’.

Zoe is also the founder and creative director of Inkyeverafter Press
