Penny grew up on a farm in central-western NSW and spent her days exploring the bush and planning treasure hunts with her four brothers and sisters.

Sharon Davey is a children’s illustrator and author who has a past in Theatre Design. Born to a strong northern family, she was indoors a lot as a kid, due to the inclement weather and risk of rosy cheeks. She spent all family occasions under the table drawing characters and tying people’s shoelaces together. It was 1990 when her rise to stardom finally arrived and she smoked her competition at the holiday camp’s ‘colouring in’ contest. “I will draw for a living!” she proclaimed on the winner’s podium, as she held her certificate. Since then she has been working hard to fulfill that promise to her 9 year old self. With a brief departure into set and costume design for theatre, lasting 15 years, she has always drawn, created and illustrated. If Sharon is not at her desk working, you can find her drinking tea and baking cakes.
