Prue was born in Melbourne, Australia. After studying Art and Design she worked in advertising, which lead to her dream job, illustrating and designing record covers for EMI Australia. Working mainly in two colours, Prue developed her own style and the love of a limited palette. During this time, she illustrated a junior fiction novel, The Lilly-Pilly. After years of painting and ceramics, Prue has returned to her passion for illustration.

She has just finished illustrating her fifth book which is due to be released later in 2020.
