Hello! My name is Sara Lynn Cramb.
I'm an illustrator and designer with a love of nature, animals, and travel. I currently live in Athens,
GA with my husband, two grumpy turtles, a pair of mischievous cats, and far more books
than one person should own.


I specialize in creating
enjoyable, and easily accessible, learning experiences by infusing engaging imagery,
unique color usage, and subtle humor into map, scientific concept, and wildlife illustrations.

 I also specialize in print and web design services for publishers and non profit organizations.
I am a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and the
Guild of Natural Science Illustrators
