Drawing is my way of seeing the beauty in the world...
Liz Duthie has recently completed her first creative non-fiction picture book with Walker Books Australia, for their wonderful Nature Storybook Series. She is now working on a picture book with Little Pink Dog Books. Both are due out in 2021. She is also Education Officer at the La Trobe Art Institute, Bendigo.
Liz’s fine arts training has given her a flexible style that expresses humour, emotion and movement. She is able to respond to a variety of texts, including non-fiction. She specializes in illustration for picture books and middle grade chapter books using traditional mediums such as water colour, pen and ink, acrylic, pencil and mixed media.
Liz has a B.A. Fine Arts, Bendigo CAE, and a Grad. Dip. Special Education, from La Trobe University. She has honed her illustration skills and industry knowledge through SCWBI, Australian Society of Authors, Lilla Rogers Make Art That Sells online courses, and many other conferences and workshops, dedicated practice and reading literally hundreds of picture books to three sparky daughters.
