ABOUT AMY CALAUTTI
Amy has loved to draw from a young age. She studied fashion and design the entire way through high school along with any extra art units that were available. She then continued her study of fashion and textile design at Perth Central TAFE. After a 15 year gap Amy picked up her pencils and rediscovered her love of drawing when she became a mother. She joined the 52 week Illustration Challenge and began to comprehend what her true potential could be. With her new found direction she became a active member in SCBWI then she took part in Nina Rycroft’s picture book illustration course in late 2017, and has been working on her portfolio ever since.
In late 2018 Amy began work on illustrating her first picture book ‘When the Moon is a Smile’ (written by Teena Raffa-Mulligan) and published by Daisy lane publishing due for release in June 2019. her upcoming books are “Hector and his Highland Dancers”, written by Anthony Sevil published by Little Pink Dog Books.
Amy lives with her small tribe of humans who bring her endless inspiration. If she’s not hunched over her drawing table madly scribbling her marvellous creations, she is either cooking up a storm or hosting an extravagant pool party.
A blend of fun loving characters, mixed in with a splash of humour and a dab of watercolour.
