About the Authors

Fraser Williamson

Fraser Williamson was brought up on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand.

He studied Fine Arts at the Auckland University of Technology before beginning a career in illustration. His work has featured in magazines, books and ad campaigns, both nationally and internationally.

Fraser regularly exhibits his paintings at the Flagstaff Gallery in Devonport, many of which now adorn walls in Auckland, Melbourne, Finland, Malta and London.

He lives in Auckland with his wife Loisi and their son Antonio. They like to spend their time between Tonga, New Zealand and Spain.

Fraser also works with his brothers Matthew and Luke, who operate as Halcyon Design, and they combine their design and illustration talents on many projects.

Matthew Williamson

Matthew Williamson was born and raised in Devonport, Auckland. He followed an early career path that involved surfing and laboring but moved on to become a graphic designer with medical publishing company ADIS Press. This led on to several roles as a magazine art director and graphic designer.

For the last twenty-two years, Matthew has worked with his brothers, Luke and Fraser, in the areas of design and publishing.

Matthew now lives just outside Warkworth, north of Auckland, with his wife Erena and their two children, Miles and Moana. He runs Halcyon Design with brother Luke and, when not at work or operating as a child taxi service, enjoys the aquatic and rural pleasures of the area.


Praise for My Body for Kiwi Babies

“My boy has ant in his pants and is a bit of a night owl so I was happy to see the colourful illustration of these board books grab his attention immediately ... Pointing at the words and using the cute pictures to read them he was happily engaged and I was quietly pleased with its educational undertow! With sounds at the back of the book you’ll both be pros in pronunciation in no time. Older siblings can get involved in the fun too, learning a few more words in Maori, and if they haven’t already been calling their tummy “puku” from time they could speak they soon will be!”

Ronnie Swainston, Kidspot
