Live from my workspace


Sue deGennaro

Drawing as a child filled in all the spaces left behind by having no TV. In high school my love of drawing become obvious when it was revealed that art was the only class I never skipped.

I have done a degree in film, dropped out of Art School and even tried my hand at contemporary dance. As it turned out I wasn’t any good at remembering any more than three steps at a time.

For the next 10 years I trained as an aerialist / performance artist. My career ventured to the circus world finishing in an all girl flying trapeze troupe. However as time passed I found my fingers still searching for a pencil.

In 2009 I received a Mentorship from the Australian Society of Authors.  Since then I have illustrated 20 Picture Books. My first book as an author/ illustrator was The Pros and Cons of Being a Frog which was awarded Shortlisted Book in the Children’s Book Council’s Book of the Year Awards- Early Childhood category 2013 and received a Notable Award in the Picture Book category.

I am published by Scholastic Australia,Scholastic UK, Harper Collins Australia, Penguin, Allen and Unwin, ABC Books and Walker Australia, Simon and Schuster US, Peachtree US, Harper 360 UK and US, Editions Circonflexe (France), Pulbit Publishing (Korea) Lappan (Germany) Bombom Publishing, Yes Dream (Korea)
