Preferred audience: Kindergarten to Year 12
Kelly is an internationally-published illustrator, and recently author, of over a dozen books for children. With a Bachelor of Art in Design from Curtin University, Kelly applies her edgy, quirky style to the pages of picture books, chapter books, early reader books, colouring books and beyond! Her books are published widely throughout the US and the UK.
Comfortable with both large and small groups, Kelly’s presentations are lively, fun and interactive. Presentations to younger groups usually involve a reading of one of Kelly's picture books followed by some talking, some questions and a whole lot of drawing! Older groups will be taken through the range and diversity of books, the varying styles and the processes involved in the books Kelly has published, followed by some talking, questions and a whole lot of drawing!
Kelly can get as messy as you like with group charcoal drawings or she can keep it clean with up-the-front drawing demonstrations and audience participation activities.
