Helen McCosker

“I am an artist, illustrator and children’s book author based in Thirroul. Most of my career has been as a freelance illustrator for a variety of magazines and books on gardening and travel.


My first picture book “The Nightfish” was published by The Five Mile Press in 2006. Since then I have had several exhibitions of drawings in Sydney and regional centres with one drawing winning The Thirroul Seaside Arts Festival in 2017. I am currently working on an illustrated chapter book for children as well as a series of wooden assemblages based on well-known fairy tales and some large pastel drawings inspired by the Illawarra coastline.”
