Bronwyn Houston

Bronwyn Houston is descended from the Nyiyaparli and Yindjiparndi people of the Wana clan in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Bronwyn was born and bred in Broome and draws her inspiration from the natural world she knows and loves. 

Bronwyn has a Diploma of Graphic Design and an extraordinary flare for illustration and art. Her creativity extends to being an author and illustrator of various published works as well as commissioned pieces that reside in collections nationally. She has run many illustration workshops in WA, including a workshop at the Perth International Festival in 2014.

Bronwyn illustrated her first book Loongie the Greedy Crocodile (Kiefer and Lucy Dann, 2008) at the age of twenty-one. Staircase to the Moon (2011) was her second title as an illustrator and first as an author.  Her third book was a collaboration: My Home Broome (2012). Her fourth book, Counting Aussie Animals in my Backyard was published in October 2014.
