The Happy Snail

Fun and colourful art and illustration, exploring faith, family and the value of materials.

I am The Happy Snail also known as Sarah or Mummy.

I am an artist and illustrator with a passion for colour, community art projects and reusing discarded materials.

My style varies according to the piece I am producing. My family portraits are cute, colourful and digitally produced, but much of my work uses traditional materials to create original art and prints.

I love to use junk to make artwork as I feel this is kinder to our planet, but also reminiscent of God’s ability to create beauty from the unloved and undervalued. I am inspired by my faith by nature and all things vintage. I can often be found mooching around vintage and charity shops looking for bargains.

My range of personalised prints are perfect for birthdays, baptisms and other special occasions. I specialise in cartoon family portraits- which have been amazingly popular. Many people order them to adorn their own walls, but very often they are used as a unique and personal gift for special friends. People love seeing themselves and their families
in cartoon form!
