Sara Gimbergsson

Pictures are my best language! I have always drawn. Ever since my first scribbling. When I got a little older, the wall behind the door to the living room became mine. There I drew with my crayons. What a feeling, what a joy! The feeling is still the same today when I illustrate my own or other people's stories."

Sara Gimbergsson is an illustrator. She mostly works on other people's texts, but it also happens that she writes her own stories. Her texts are usually quite concise, accompanying her very expressive images, with an unmistakable warm humor and sincerity. Sara is a member of the Swedish Children's Books Academy. She has been awarded the Västra Götaland County Cultural Scholarship in 2009 and the Gothenburg City Cultural Award in 2011.
