Sassafras De Bruyn
Ever since she was a little girl, Sassafras De Bruyn (1990, Asse) knew she wanted to spend her life drawing. After high school that passion for drawing led her to Sint Lucas School of Arts in Antwerp. In 2013, she graduated as an illustrative designer and started working as an illustrator and graphic designer at the children’s and youth theatre Kopergietery in Ghent. In addition, she illustrates different project and creates her own work. In 2015, her first picture book Cleo was published at Clavis Publishing; it was a dream come true. It got the ball rolling and now making books is part of her daily routine.
Sassafras lives in Ghent and loves endless stories to hide away in, with warm colors and unlikely heroes. She has a weakness for old pictures, cats, tea, science fiction and Pippi Longstocking.
