ABOUT ASKA

  • Aśka is creative dynamite.
    She’s an award-winning graphic novelist, an ex-quantum physicist, and a big fan
    of the little doovalacky above the ‘s’ in her name (which you pronounce
    ‘Ash-ka’).

    A hugely engaging and
    popular presenter,
    Aśka is passionate about
    visual literacy. She has published
    more than ten books and graphic novels. Her recent titles include the
    CBCA Notable YA graphic novel STARS IN THEIR EYES, which was bought by
    Scholastic US in 2022. She is also a recipient of several government Arts grants,
    prizes, and the May Gibbs Fellowship.

    Aśka has been a judge for the Make
    Your Own Storybook Competition five years running, is an organizing committee
    member for the Perth Comic Arts Festival, contributes regularly to The
    School Magazine
    , volunteered as Illustrator Coordinator in the WA branch
    of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators for four years, has single-handedly run an animation festival, once won a grant for a solo art
    exhibition, and has been featured in an ABC TV documentary. 

    When she’s not creating children’s books, Aśka is traveling across Western Australia as a roving science communicator.
