Denise Nestor is an illustrator and artist originally from Mayo in the west of Ireland. Her works are very sensitive, personal and compelling and have a beautiful naturalness. Her portfolio is just like her illustrations simple but appealing. We enjoy the mix of faces, facial structures, animals and a mixture of all three things as a way to describe her characters. Denise has been living and working in Dublin for nearly ten years. She graduated in 2004 from Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology and has been working in Dublin ever since.
