Jion Sheibani

Jion grew up in Brighton and now lives in Paris. She studied English at Somerville College Oxford and is a self-taught illustrator.

As a child, Jion’s idol was the schoolgirl author of The Garden Gang, Jayne Fisher. Her most treasured picture book will probably always be Where The Wild Things Are.

Jion’s debut picture book, Lily and the Polar Bears, will be published by Faber in September 2018.  She is currently working on more picture books and an illustrated novel in verse.

Her portfolio can be found on her website.
