Duffy Mooney-Sheppard


Hello! I am an Irish artist, illustrator and writer. My background is in fine art and art education with children and young people. I spent many happy years working with children and adults at The Ark, Dublin, where imagination, play and stories are at the heart of everything they do.

I absolutely love researching and coming up with new stories and images. The MA has been a marvellous and challenging experience, I have been learning how to communicate and bring to life my strange world of stories and characters.

I am particularly inspired by philosophy, folklore and the natural world. My belief in the importance of kindness, play, curiosity and creativity are ideas at the heart of all of my work.
