M.J. Reidy

Visual Art – Newcastle, NSW

M.J. Reidy is a writer/artist based on the Central Coast of NSW. In 2017 she was the winner of Elle magazine's national short story competition- titled 'Australia's next writing superstar.' But she also loves to paint and draw and make- especially on different mediums such as vinyl records and vintage pianola scrolls. The subjects of her art are eclectic and wide ranging - from jellyfish to Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and Fern from Charlotte's web. She also sources old books/novels from op shops and gives them a new purpose by turning them into pencil boxes and book clutches/purses. ...more
