Duffy Mooney-Sheppard

Story Maker, Writer & Illustrator Based in Dublin, Ireland

Email hello@duffydraws.com

I am a story maker, writer and illustrator. I specialise in making work for children and also create art workshops and creative programs for children, their families and schools.

 

I am a recent graduate from the Masters in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art. In 2020, I was awarded the YPCE Bursary and Literature Project Grant from the Arts Council of Ireland. This year I received the MAKE theatre residency (Project Arts Centre, Theatre Forum and Dublin Fringe Festival) and the Exploring & Thinking Bursary (Dublin City Council).

Play, curiosity and kindness are ideas at the heart of all of my work. I love coming up with new stories and images. I am inspired by philosophy, folklore and the natural world.
