ciao!


I am Sarah Khoury, an Italian illustrator based in Antibes, France.

Born in 1984, I have loved drawing since when I was a child.
I graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice and I specialized in illustration for children.

My PICTURE BOOKS have been published since 2011 in Italy and France.

Inspiring to my childhood favourite puppet, I created the character of CIACIO the “bearbit”.
