About the Illustrator

Matt Shanks's early fascination for the combination of words and pictures saw him complete a Bachelor of Design at the University of Sydney in 2003. It took him 10 years though, while working as a Creative Director at some of Melbourne's best design agencies, to realise that this 'watercolour hobby' of his needed to be shared with more than just his wife and cat. Matt has now illustrated several picture books and lives in Melbourne.
