Nelle Pierce V.O.P.* is an imaginative writer and illustrator and undomesticated house-troll.
She has treasured words and pictures ever since she found some nice ones under a rock in the Winter of 1982 and discovered they were free to anyone who cared to take them home.
Her childhood days were spent trudging through the wilderness around a small farming town, or curled up in bed reading Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl and classic science-fiction, or making creative messes, which often took over the entire house for weeks on end. Nothing much has changed really.
When not slaving away at the crayons in the studio Nelle makes a spectacle of herself as a Live Scribe. This basically involves a lot of listening and scribbling on giant whiteboards to capture discussions at events, which is a rather fabulous job really.
Nelle lives in Melbourne with her family and two moody, shapeshifting cats.
* A V.O.P is a Very Ordinary Person, and not any more important than anyone else, despite what they might tell you.
