Educator - Artist – Author

“All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree.”

Albert Einstein, 1937

Published works

The publication of two of Zela’s children’s books, Melly and the Bilby and Yoshio and the Magic Bowl, have been a long labour of love for both herself and her family. Both stories were written during her long career as an educator and were developed in cooperation with classes of students.

Zela’s handmade papers and cards are created from natural materials mostly from her own garden, using low-tech, environmentally friendly methods. You can purchase assorted packets of these directly from Zela’s Etsy store below.
