About the Author
Morgana Wallace was born into an artistic family in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and later moved to Victoria, British Columbia, where she studied at the Victoria College of Art, before becoming a full-time artist. As a child, she was captivated by book illustrations, and still believes they are as important as the narrative. Her medium is mainly paper collage, but she incorporates watercolor, ink, and pen to create her imaginary world of characters. She has had several successful shows at Victoria’s Madrona Gallery, as well as completing four commissions for the British children’s magazine, Aquila. Hedy and Her Amazing Invention is her first children’s book. She lives in Victoria, British Columbia.
