Patricia Mullins

Award-winning author/illustrator Patricia Mullins remembers drawing constantly at school. Encouraged by her creative mother, Patricia trained at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and gained a Fellowship of Illustration in 1974. She subsequently became an illustrator and a puppet-maker, and spent several years overseas perfecting her craft. Her favourite media are collage, linocuts and mixed media that achieve striking results—unique works that are rich in colour and bring a sense of texture to the pages.
