Jemima Sharpe - Author

Jemima Sharpe was born in Cambridge. She grew up in a household with three cats who occasionally joined her for tea parties, and mostly slept through them.

She studied fashion design at London College of Fashion. She has been a cocktail waitress, a shop girl at London’s oldest vintage shop, Steinberg & Tolkien, and a fashion design assistant.

Jemima rekindled her love of drawing on the Children’s Book Illustration MA course at Cambridge School of Art. Here she found the print room and, with technical advice from John Williams, began making screen prints for Mr Moon Wakes Up.

She won the 2013 Sebastian Walker Award for New Talent in Illustration.

Jemima lives in London with her son.
