Sarah Grindler grew up on Salt Spring Island where she gained a love for the land and sea, and a passion for art. Inspired by her fathers career in illustration,  she was constantly drawing. Surrounded by nature and story telling, Sarah now works as an author/illustrator of picture books.


      She has attended the Canadian College of Performing Arts, the Camosun College Visual Arts Program, and a continuing studies program in Children's Picture Book Illustration at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. She also received a remarkable education with her library card. :) 

She now lives in a seaside cottage with her wonderful husband Jason and little son, Jackson.
