I’m Sheila Keegan, a freelance illustrator from the United States, currently based in Beijing.


I grew up in Florida with three siblings, many cats, and quirky parents obsessed with recreating the Philippine jungle in our backyard. One of my fondest memories as a child was the magic of painting for the first time. I’ve been painting and drawing ever since.  

I studied at the Columbus College of Art and Design and earned a BFA in Industrial Design. After several years of freelancing in the craft jewelry industry, I started painting more and more, which lead to a natural shift to illustration.


I enjoy making artwork that embraces handmade imperfections and creativity. I’m inspired by nature, travel, and the imagination. My playful style aims to make your day more delightful.

I would love to work with you! If you are interested collaborating with me for your latest project or have licensing enquiries about my existing work, feel free to get in touch, and I invite you to follow along on social media.
