Louis Shea

Louis Shea is an illustrator of many children’s books including the bestselling There was an Old Lady series, Where’s Santa? and Where’s the Easter Bunny? look-and-find books.

The child of an art teacher and artist, Louis initially rebelled and studied science at university, before being inexorably drawn back into the world of illustration. After completing his Honours Degree in Graphic Design, he spent many years unsuccessfully trying to avoid logos and business cards. Thankfully, in the end, he was rescued by a generous publisher, who saw something in his silly scribbles.

After many years of illustrating picture books, he is now branching out into the world of graphic novels, with his new series School of Fish published in 2021.

Louis lives in the Blue Mountains with his partner, two children and one disobedient border collie... and still occasionally dreams of being an astronaut.
