About
Amanda Francey grew up on the leafy edges of Brisbane, Queensland.

As the daughter of a comicstrip artist and art supply retailer, Amanda’s early storytelling and picture book making antics were greatly encouraged and supported.

Amanda went on to study at Queensland College of Art and worked for many years in graphic design and art direction before returning to her childhood dream of illustrating children’s books.

Amanda’s first picture book, Jonathan!, written by Peter Carnavas, was shortlisted Speech Pathology Australia Book of the Year Award (3 to 5 years) 2014. Her recent picture book, Take Ted Instead, written by Cassandra Webb, was listed Children’s Book Council of Australia, Notable Book (Early Childhood) 2017. Amanda has just completed illustrating her fourth picture book, That Christmas Feeling, written by Lili Wilkinson, which will be released late 2017 with Allen and Unwin.
