Emma Quay is an illustrator and writer of many award-winning
picture books; her memorable characters for Rudie Nudie, Baby
Bedtime, Shrieking Violet, Bear and Chook, Daddy's Cheeky Monkey,
Good Night, Me and Scarlett, Starlet are favourites on children's
bookshelves all over Australia. One of her more recent titles, for
very young children, is My Sunbeam Baby.
Emma grew up in the English countryside, and has wanted to illustrate children's books for as long as she can remember. She works from a studio in her home and sometimes feels like she barely leaves it, but her illustrative work is held in collections around the world, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
