Jemima Trappel


Jemima is a Sydney-based artist and illustrator who enjoys riding her bicycle. Like many illustrators, she was born holding a pencil and uses it frequently to bring words to life.

She decided to make a career out of her passion, and in 2012, after five years at the College of Fine Arts and the University of NSW, she emerged with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (with honours), a Bachelor of Arts (a combined degree) and the ability to converse in French.

Same by Katrina Roe was her first picture book with Wombat Books. Also with Wombat Books are: Tom Topp and the Great Adventure Swap and Nelly Jelly and the Magnificent Tree
