The Artist - 

Cecilia May Gibbs (17 January 1877 – 27 November 1969), publishing  under the name May Gibbs, was an English-born  Australian children's  author, illustrator and cartoonist and remains one of Australia’s best loved  children’s book creators. May’s deep love of the Australian bush was  portrayed in her work, engendering in children her own love of nature.The Gumnut Babies, May’s classic book about  Australian bush fairies,  was first published in 1916 and was followed by many other Gumnut stories including her famous creations  Snugglepot & Cuddlepie. When she  died, May Gibbs bequeathed her works to the  Northcott Society and The Cerebal Palsy Alliance. Through her foresight, May Gibbs has helped  thousands of Australian children with disabilities and their families.
