Freya Blackwood burst onto the Australian publishing scene when illustrations for her first book, Two Summers (2003) written by John Heffernan, won her the Children's Book Council of Australia (CBCA) 2004 Crichton Award for best new illustrator.

Having illustrated more than two-dozen books Blackwood has, in a relatively short career, secured her place as one of the best known and most highly awarded Australian illustrators.

This exhibition traces Freya Blackwood's career in picturebook illustration and provides insight into the way she works and the creative decisions she makes.
