Lois Bury

After a career in nursing, Lois decided around 2000 to become a full time artist and illustrator. She lives temporarily on Bruny Island, Tasmania with her husband Graham and a West Highland puppy.

Lois is basically self-taught, but did first year of a Fine Arts Degree many years ago before children arrived. Most of her work so far has been focussed on the birdlife of Bruny, winning peoples' choice award at the recent Bird Festival. She has also been shortlisted in the Hutchins Art Prize works on Paper 2013 and was a judge in the Kingborough Art Prize for 2015.

More importantly, illustrating for children's books has been her aspiration, enjoying the prospect of telling stories with pictures. Lois has contracts to illustrate two picture books in 2015. One book will be based on a large sheep farm on Bruny and the second by Bruny Island author Anne Morgan. She is also enrolled in the London College of Art Illustrators Course.
