Gwyn Perkins began his artistic career when he won a newspaper drawing prize of one guinea and a box of paints (mistakenly awarded to Miss Gwyn Perkins). He spent many years as a successful animator in the advertising industry before moving to an island north of Sydney to enjoy a slower pace.
Gwyn's first picture book as author and illustrator A Walk in the Bush, just took out the top prize for Picture Book of the Year 2018 from the Children’s Book Council of Australia.
He chats about the inspiration of the landscape around him, and why he wrote this particular story for his granddaughter.
Get your hands on a copy of Gwyn's award winning book and additional books in the series at your local bookstore or online.
