LAUNCH PARTY: THE REAL COWGIRL

Sunday 7 July 2024

The Real Cowgirl enjoyed an incredibly special launch party at the Book Cow in Kingston. Author Isabelle Duff made the trip to Canberra for it, and brought along Saffy (the real-life inspiration behind Cookie), who turned out to be the star of the show. It was great to finally meet them both!

 

Craft was plentiful, cupcakes were gobbled and hobby horses were gleefully galloped around the shop.

 

Thank you to the Book Cow and to everyone for coming along and welcoming Sal and her pony into the world. 

WELCOME TO THE WORLD, THE REAL COWGIRL!

June 2024

What a joy it is to hold a copy of The Real Cowgirl. I love the colour palette in this book, and I'm so proud of how it has come out. Written by Isabelle Duff, author of Cookie, it will be galloping into bookshops and libraries this June. 

I'M IN THE EK SALES CATALOGUE!

May 2024

Thrilling to be given a copy of the EK Books Catalogue for 2024 and discover my work splattered throughout it! Having worked in bookshops for many years, diligently studying and ordering from catalogues like this, it is a 'pinch me' moment every time I see something I created featured in one. I have four books featured in this catalogue, including the imminent release, The Real Cowgirl and, excitingly, Too Many Acorns which is both written and illustrated by me, coming out later this year. 

LAUNCH PARTY: CLOUDSPOTTING

Saturday 18 June 2023

Cloudspotting was officially launched into the world in style, and what a glorious day for a book party on a boat on Lake Burley Griffin!

We had some very enthusiastic eaters of cloud cupcakes, crab cookie
s and crab lollipops, and some wonderfully creative crafters. I spotted some future illustrators in the crowd! Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with us, and the hugest thank you to the Book Cow Kingston and the amazing venue MV Southern Cross.

WELCOME TO THE WORLD, CLOUDSPOTTING!

March 2023

Wow, the colours in Cloudspotting are just glorious! It's one thing seeing the paintings on my desk and proofs on my screen, it's something else entirely holding a physical copy of the book. Written by Canberra powerhouse Samantha Tidy, it's floating onto bookshelves now. What a joy to watch my son noticing his own toys in the illustrations, giggling at the sea gulls' antics and spotting animals in the clouds.
