Sarah Smith

I have fallen in love with this illustration of a grandmother making slow progress on her old legs.
 'In apartment 53 where Nana Georgina live, the doorbell rings. Lately she has felt she has become quite slow at walking she makes her way to the door, shuffling from one foot to the other, over and over and over again - almost as though she has several pairs of legs.' The Butterfly House by Sarah Smith, Tate, London. 2014

 A lovely warm story about friendship between a grandmother and her grandchildren.
This grandmother is special (they all are).
She lives in a house full of butterflies and also knows how to change into one.
Sarah studied Children's Book Illustration at Anglia Ruskin University in 2011 and is based in Bristol.
