Sally Morgan

About

Sally Morgan is one of Australia’s best-known Aboriginal artists and writers.

Sally’s widely-acclaimed first book, My Place, has sold over half a million copies in Australia. Her children’s picture story books include Little Piggies and Hurry Up Oscar. She has collaborated with artist and illustrator Bronwyn Bancroft on several picture books including Dan’s GrampaCurly and the Fent was written by Sally in collaboration with her children Ambelin, Blaze and Ezekiel. 

For as long as she can remember, Sally wanted to paint and write but at school she was discouraged from expressing herself through her art because her teachers failed to see the promise in her individual style. It was not until she researched her family history and discovered her Aboriginal identity that she found meaning in her images and gained the confidence to pick up her paints again.

Sally is a Professor at the Centre for Aboriginal Studies at the University of Western Australia and lives in Perth with her three children.
