Kerry Kitzelman

Kerry Kitzelman is a children's writer and illustrator who began drawing and painting for enjoyment from a very early age. He began in much the same way as many children, when he received a number of colouring books as gifts. These simple colouring and drawing skills led him to develop a unique eye for colour, shape and form as well as the ability to translate wild animals into wild art. He hopes to inspire children, through reading and colouring, to learn and discover more about Australia’s unique natural environment.

Kerry's background includes lecturing at university, as well as working in fauna parks and environmental centres in South-East Queensland, and he currently works in publishing. He has written and illustrated a number of engaging children's story books and activity books for Steve Parish Publishing.
