Shira Bentley is a Sydney based artist and illustrator. Shira began her career as a print artist exhibiting and publishing her work nationally. Her love of collaborative storytelling quickly drew her to illustration where she honed her superpower for transforming ideas into engaging visual stories filled with colour, humour and snippets of daily life.

Today Shira draws on over a decade of experience as a creative professional and combines her fine art and digital art skills to create engaging and shareable illustrations.

Shira’s work has been exhibited nationally and is featured in private collections both in Australia and internationally. She has worked with artists such as Chris O'Doherty (also known as Reg Mombassa), Noel McKenna and Elisabeth Cummings, and clients such as Greenpeace, Transport for London and New Holland Publishers.  

When Shira isn’t working, you can usually find her rock climbing, chasing puppies, sampling delicious morsels and looking at beautiful things.
