I'M SANDRA EIDE
I’m a children’s book illustrator and surface designer from the lush forests of the PNW, but am currently residing in the hot desert of Nevada with my husband and our border collie.
I work with a mixture of real watercolors, textures, and digital mediums to create my illustrations. My style is soft and sweet with an emphasis on characters and connections. My art is influenced by nature, culture, and the importance of showing all kinds of people in my illustrations.
I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in creative writing from the University of Washington and have spent the last few years illustrating and developing ideas for children’s books.
My Client list includes:
Shambala Kids, WaterBrook & Multnomah, Wren & Bear Books, Paraclete Press, Friend Magazine, The Good and The Beautiful, Tommy Nelson, Mighty Kind Kids, and Summit Education Initiative
When I’m not in my studio, you can find me hanging out in my flower garden, baking something chocolatey, or curled up on the couch to catch a new romcom.
I am represented by The Bright Agency and a member of SCBWI.
