Sally has illustrated more than twenty books as well as writing and illustrating her own picture books, novels and a series of information and activity books on various Asian countries.
Sally’s work has been recognised through fellowships from the Asialink Foundation, The May Gibbs Children’s Literature Trust, Varuna – the Writers’ Centre and Arts SA, and her original artwork and lino-prints have been exhibited in Australia and Asia.
Searching for connections and relationships between people, communities, cultures and the environment, and for a sense of place and of belonging, are recurring themes in both her writing and artwork.
Sally offers ‘Meet the Author/Illustrator’ sessions with students of all ages, sharing the process of writing and illustrating picture books. She also offers a range of hands on workshops for both children and adults and is happy to discuss options to suit a particular age or focus.
