Coral Tulloch was born in Melbourne and currently lives in Tasmania. A history in promotion and illustration in newspapers led her to create a syndicated children's page for children, appearing for over 20 years in newspapers throughout Australia and internationally. Coral studied Fine Art and then animation in Sydney and had periods at studios, drawing in Florence, Italy and in lithography at The Academy of Applied Arts in Prague. She has worked in advertising, film, theatre and magazine production, but her main focus remains with children's literature. Coral has illustrated many fiction and nonfiction books for children. Her work One Small Island, with co-author/illustrator Alison Lester, has won many awards including the 2012 CBCA Eve Pownall Award for Information Books. The Journey was her first title with Walker.
