Jodie Rigby

Jodie first discovered the program at the bookstore launch of Emma’s book, Child Writes: Creating a Children’s Picture Book is Child’s Play. She was immediately inspired and quickly become our first accredited Child Writes tutor.

Jodie brings a wealth of experience and skills to Child Writes, from both the nursing and primary education fields. She holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts and has been involved in the development and production of two collaborative Artist Picture Books. Jodie is passionate about children’s literature and reads to her young children every day. She loves to express herself visually and finds it rewarding to pass on techniques and encouragement to others who are illustrating their worlds. 

Jodie makes her home in Toowoomba with her husband, Spencer, and three daughters. She is available to tutor the Child Writes program and deliver workshops within Toowoomba and the surrounding regions.
