Illustrated in Ballarat

Each location I illustrated was chosen for its significance in Ballarat. My favourite part of creating this book was the chance to sit, draw and create each scene around town.

Written in Ballarat

This book was written from the very place it is designed around. I love that I’ve created a book for Ballarat while being here to capture it’s stories and create a world for new characters to live in.

Proudly Printed in Ballarat

Supporting local is a core value of mine. Every book is printed locally by Revolution Print. Meaning my money goes back into the local economy with each sale.

"Dear Liv, We received our copy of your wonderful book today. I read the book to my two children tonight and we loved it. I told them that it was the town mummy was brought up in. Each page I told the children how each place held a special memory of mine especially the glass house in the botanical gardens, where I spent my last moments with my nana. In each page it took me back to the places I visit each and every time I stay at Ballarat. Thank you for making a book about my home town. Now I have a little part of Ballarat with me where ever I go."
