Sylvia Morris is a children’s illustrator and science communicator, currently living in Marburg, Germany. She grew up in the Adelaide Hills, on the traditional lands of the Kaurna and Peramangk peoples, and has a Masters degree in Pure Mathematics.

While studying for that Masters degree, Sylvia got really excited by learning to draw and discovered how much she loves illustrating. It combines two of her favourite things: stories and problem solving.

Her debut picture book The Best Hiding Place (written by Jane Godwin and published by Affirm Press) was shortlisted for the CBCA New Illustrator Award in 2023.

In 2024 she has three new picture books coming out: It Takes a Village, The Opal Dinosaur, and another one still under wraps!
