‘Born in Melbourne, and with a background in a variety of art media, I have followed a lifelong creative pathway, which has led me to travel extensively (armed with brushes and canvas) through outback Australia.
‘I spent time in the Kimberley where I met the real Sid and Skipper, who gave me inspiration to write their stories, and in recent years I have been engaged as Manager of an Indigenous Art Centre in remote Western Australia. My creative pursuits continue.’
Heather Charlton is both author and illustrator of Sid & Skipper Go Mustering. This is her first book.
