About Zarah

I love a good story above all. I draw, write and exhibit hand drawn magical characters and monsters. I have worked 10 years in the game industry, making games and creating concepts for kids and puerile souls.

Since 2013 I have worked as a freelance Illustrator, Creative Director and writer.
I have illustrated several picture books for publishers like Carlsen, Turbine and Fadl and would love to do more.

I am a Creative Director and strong storyteller and have a lot of experience working with and for kids.
