Emma Quay

Emma Quay is an illustrator and writer of many award-winning picture books; her memorable characters for Rudie Nudie, Bear and Chook, Good Night, Me, Shrieking Violet, Daddy's Cheeky Monkey, Not a Cloud in the Sky, Scarlett, Starlet and My Sunbeam Baby are favourites on children's bookshelves all over Australia.

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.
