Congratulations Patricia Mullins. Dromkeen Medal 2013

The Dromkeen medal is awarded annually to an Australian citizen in recognition of their contribution to the appreciation and development of children's literature in Australia.

There could be no worthier recipient than Patricia Mullins who has both created and collaborated with authors to produce almost thirty beautiful picture books.

I'm grateful to Patricia that she took on the task of illustrating Phar Lap the wonder horse. Her commitment to the truth of the story was remarkable. Patricia has a particular skill with paper collage and the images of Phar Lap, particularly the foal, have melted many hearts.

Congratulations Patricia.
