Heidi Deedman


I’m an illustrator who lives and works in East London. I love drawing in museums, eating cakes from the E5 bakery and walking Gina the truly intelligent terrier. There’s always plenty of new things to discover in a big city so it’s a great place for stories.

My first book Too Many Toys has been shortlisted for the Klaus Flugge Prize. You can read an interview about me and the book here.

I've also been selected for these Illustration Awards!
