Sally Heinrich

  • Author
  • Illustrator

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’ House and Arts SA. 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.

Talks and workshops

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.
