Sarah Betz grew up in Germany and founded Little Cube in the scenic area of Montmartre in Paris.
She never would have dreamed of turning her childhood passion of drawing and making up stories into a succesful career.
Luckily her parents encouraged her to play imaginatively and she grew up close to the forests, inspired by nature, crafting with little treasures she found on her walks, painting and creating necklaces or activity books.
After her Graphic and Communication Design studies in Germany and Switzerland she moved to Paris to learn French and embark on her design career. She founded her own illustration studio Little Cube in 2013.
Thanks to her licensing partnerships her designs are now manufactured and distributed all over the world, including a bestselling baby stationery line with Paperless Post (discover our collection here), gift wrap, boxed notecards and journals for International Greetings and American Greetings or eco-friendly fabric collections with Cloud9Fabrics.

I love being surrounded by plants and especially enjoy the Botanical Gardens and parcs in Lisbon, collecting leaves outside or spending time in Greenhouses.
You will at least find one drawing of the Eiffel Tower in each of my sketchbooks.
Source of never-ending inspiration: The busy streets of NYC, The Guggenheim Museum and the Met, art galleries, people on the subway, bookstores, all the different food choices,
simply its unique energy!
Walking to me is the best way to discover and connect to new places.
I love to walk for hours, observing scenes happening around me, and sketching these into new collections.
Spiders, snakes? No problem!
I have a slight fear of snails and sea animals - I love to draw them though and find them very fascinating.
I love to work from many different places - at my atelier in Paris, in libraries during travels or at home where I also like to move my desk around.
