Donovan Bixley

Donovan Bixley

Donovan Bixley is a one of New Zealand’s most acclaimed picture book creators with numerous awards and accolades to his name, being both an award-winning illustrator and author. His work is nothing if not varied, spanning high-brow to low-brow and every brow in between, from his sublime illustrated biography Faithfully Mozart, to the ridiculous hijinks of feline aviators in Flying Furballs, and over 90 books in between. When not immersed in the world of picture books, Donovan plays saxophone, piano and guitar. He has performed on stage as Marius in Les Misérables and has also worked behind the scenes as a set designer and painter. He lives in Taupo with his wife and three daughters.
