Zoe Bennett is a children’s illustrator based in Sydney, Australia. She creates digital illustrations which aim to capture the playful candidness of childhood and human-animal companionship.
Zoe has always been happiest when making things. Since childhood, she has loved imagining characters and their worlds, dabbling in crafts and translating ideas into pictures. Her school books were littered with sketches and her bedroom filled with piles of art journals. However, torn between her creative and scientific interests, Zoe spent years switching between university studies before a chance opportunity to illustrate her debut picture book “Lily the Inventor” led to the full-time illustration career she thought out of reach.
Zoe has illustrated several published, or soon-to-be published picture books for clients both in Australia and internationally.
Outside illustration, Zoe is passionate about animal welfare, conservation, music and travel. She is currently planning a solo van trip around Australia.
