This is the hand, heart and face behind Colour and Quill:
My name is Ilse van Staden and I am a veterinarian immigrant artist-cum-writer currently living in the second-language (English) environment of Lake Macquarie City, New South Wales, Australia. I spent the first forty years of my life in South Africa, where I acquired (not necessarily in chronological order):
a love of arts
a degree in Veterinary Science
a collection of dogs and cats
a bigger collection of books and paintings
a degree in Creative Writing
