Beau Wylie

Biography

Growing up in a house in bushland in Sydney, Beau Wylie began drawing creatures and the natural world the moment he could grasp a pencil. After graduating from the University of NSW with honours in Fine Art, Beau installed shows in art galleries, serviced boats on Sydney Harbour, and ‘worked’ in a delightful Surry Hills bookshop where he plotted a fanciful future as a children’s book author while foraging through the kids’ section. His first children’s picture book, Theodore the Unsure, is currently out through Scholastic. He now lives and works as an artist in Newcastle.
