Mary Shepard

Mary E. Shepard (25 December 1909 – 4 September 2000) was an English illustrator. She is best known for the Mary Poppins children’s books written by P. L. Travers (1934 to 1988).

She was the daughter of E. H. Shepard, a famous illustrator of children’s literature including Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne and The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. She was 23 when her father was too busy to illustrate Mary Poppins and Travers discovered her work on a Christmas card.
