Fiona McDonald studied at the Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney, Australia’s oldest private art school. While she was trying to forge a career as an artist she studied Italian and English literature at university.
Studying literature brought Fiona back to her love of reading and the idea that she wanted to write and illustrate books herself.
She now has an eclectic selection of titles published ranging from craft books, through social history and a children’s novel.
Fiona runs a toy shop, Granny Fi’s Toy Cupboard, where she sells her handmade dragons.
