Shira Bentley is a designer-illustrator based in Sydney, Australia. After graduating with Honours from the UNSW College of Fine Arts, Shira began working as a freelance illustrator. Inspired by social oddities, the natural world and funny memes, her work is a reflection of these interests through the use of colour block, collage and humour.

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 Transport for London, New Holland Publishers and Firstdraft Gallery.   

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