Hello, my name is Shana Nieberg-Suschitzky alias Shanarama.


I am illustrator and a weaver of stories who lives in the wilds of London, and can often be spotted sketching the natural inhabitants of the Underground.

  • In 2018 I was Runner-up in the Stratford Literary Festival Children's Book Competition 


  • In 2012 I won the Undiscovered Voices Competition for Illustrating 

I like to work across a variety of genres for both younger and older children and I both love the light, whilst being often drawn to the dark.


My favourite heroine of all time is Wonderwoman, but at the mere age of four I burst into tears with the bitter realisation that I was never going to inherit the 'Lasso of Truth' (or those piercing blue eyes).


All was not lost however, as I found that my superhero powers lay in my hands and my storytelling abilities, so I have been using them for good ever since.
