Judy Watson

Judy Watson grew up in a house behind her father’s veterinary clinic, and spent all her holidays on a farm near the beach. When she was not reading or drawing, she could be found lying in the long grass watching bugs and birds. Judy’s first picture book won the Prime Minister’s Literary Award for Children’s Fiction. She has illustrated over 20 books for children. She particularly enjoyed drawing Australian plants for Searching For Cicadas (written by Lesley Gibbes).
