Sheena Dempsey

I am an illustrator and children’s author from Cork living in London. I came here to study for an MA in illustration in 2010 and since then I have worked with various publishers in the UK and in Ireland e.g. Andersen Press, Walker Books, Templar Publishing, Little Island, An Gúm, Faber and Faber and Barrington Stoke.

The illustrations from my newest picture book Gringer the Whinger (written by Jane Landy, publishing with Golden Key) were shortlisted for the Institute Designers Ireland (IDI) Award in the Editorial/Publishing category.

Yoga Babies will publish on 7th September (written by Fearne Cotton, publishing with Andersen Press).

The Dave Pigeon series (written by Swapna Haddow, published by Andersen Press) was shortlisted for the Sainsbury’s Children’s Book Award 2016, the Sheffield Children’s Book Award 2017, the Leicester Children’s Book Award 2017 and it won both the Surrey Libraries Children’s Book Award and the North Somerset Teacher’s Book Awards.

My illustrations for Billy Button Telegram Boy (written by Sally Nicholls, published by Barrington Stoke) were shortlisted for the CBI Book of the Year Award 2017.

The strengths of my work are character, humour and colour.
