Coral Tulloch has illustrated over 50 fiction and non-fiction books for children, in Australia and internationally.
She is the creator of a syndicated page for children, 'The Tales of Wombat Creek', which appeared for over 20 years in newspapers throughout Australia and overseas. Her book Antarctica, The Heart of the World, which she wrote and illustrated, won the Environment Award for Children's Literature in 2004.
As well as having a passion for environmental education, Coral loves Antarctica, which she visits when she can as artist-in-residence on tourist voyages; but recently drawings of penguins have given way to tortoise shells.
Coral lives in Hobart with her husband, Peter and daughter, Tully.
