Anne Ryan

    Anne Ryan is an author, illustrator, artist and art educator living in Melbourne.

    Through school visits, artist-in-residence programs, workshops and Visual Arts specialist teaching, she has enjoyed sharing her creative processes and storytelling with young children for many years.

    As an author/illustrator, her first picture book was Unforeseen Circumstances. Anne participated as an illustrator on the Australian creator’s stand at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair in Italy 2017 and 2018 with her illustrated picture book Shadowcat written by Julia Louise.

    Her recent illustrated releases include RapperBee written by Harry Laing, and Salih written by Inda Ahmad Sahri.


    Anne has shared creative workshops with all ages. She is a passionate promoter of visual literacy through children’s picture books.

    Her workshops aim to inspire curiosity and creative thinking with mark making and diverse creative processes. Workshops can springboard from a provocation such as an object, a story, an event, a community connection or the wild and natural Australian environment.
