Biography Born in Western Australia, artist and illustrator Rebecca Cool lives on a rural property on the Margaret River, WA with her partner. Rebecca has studied at the Claremont School of Fine Art and has had her work shown at a number of exhibitions. Rebecca is happiest when she is painting and creating her charming, colourful and playful compositions. Her work features a combination of acrylic paint and fabric collage, and her strong, colourful works have a naïve charm reminiscent of European folk art. Isabella’s Garden (written by Glenda Millard) is her first book and has received many awards including Honour Book, Picture Book of the Year category, Children’s Book Council of Australia Awards, 2010. Rebecca was also short-listed for the Crichton Award in 2010.
