Liz Parkinson has lived at North Avoca for almost the last 40 years, and came from Muswellbrook originally. She graduated in Economics after attending Sydney University, and became a teacher. After that she worked in her husband’s computer and internet business for a number of years. She has also travelled widely and in recent years has settled into the latter-day careers of writing and art.

Her cards feature local landmarks, native trees or Australian birds which are drawn in my own unique style. She has written a history of Terrigal which has been very well received and is now in its second edition. She has had numerous exhibitions of her artwork both in Australia and overseas with a number of her pieces included in collections and galleries.
