Stacey L Profile.jpg

wild dreamer | writer | illustrator | speaker | storyteller | mama

Stacey can be found scribbling out story ideas and dreaming up a rainbow storm in her plant-filled Melbourne studio. She is proud mama to three little people who are boundless fun and all kinds of wonderful.

Stacey has set aside her midwifery and special care nursing gloves to spend her days paper cutting, pasting and trying to draw as good as her kids. Her stories are a mix of delight, heart and soul as she learnt very young how to conquer mountains. She carries a passion to tell her story through pictures and characters, to instill hope into the lives of children and families.

Stacey lives with her little tribe in outer Melbourne after living and adventuring in America and Canada, where she inevitably left behind a portion of her heart somewhere among those oaks and snowy peaks (…most likely in Central Park where the squirrels play and the air is filled with the smell of caramel toasted nuts….?).
Stacey has devoured several courses in Writing and Illustrating Children’s Picture Books [RMIT Melb, 2015 | CAE Melb, 2013 | BSC Redding, California, 2018].

Rainbows, tropical beaches, snuggly animals, new paints, storms, rice lattes and leafy greens are some of her favorite things.

Stacey is available for illustrations, writing, speaking, collaborations and workshops.

She just can't wait to hear from you. x
