Elise Hurst

I am an illustrator and author of children’s books, as well as a traditional artist. I work in a messy studio at home in Melbourne, near the cemetery and the zoo. I live with my husband, Peter, who is working on his doctorate in Linguistics, in a house full of books and paintings and, lately, twin boys. I’ve illustrated many books over the years – by a range of wonderful authors and also some that I’ve written myself.
