Based on the story of a quilt that was made by convict women on board the Rajah, bound for Australia.

Lizzie Flynn has nothing but her name when she boards the Rajah, which is bound for the penal colony of Australia.

On board the Rajah the convict women were given a "useful bag" containing among other things fabric and needle and thread.

The women were taught to sew and together they made the Rajah quilt which is currently housed in the National Library.

Lizzy Newcomb

As a child, Lizzy Newcomb would sit and watch her dad draw and hand-colour his architectural plans; this inspired her love of art.

Sydney-born and raised, she spent most of her childhood exploring the bushland near her home and began a love affair with nature.

Lizzy has studied nursing, travelled throughout Europe and Scandinavia, and run a business producing handmade ceramic pieces. In 2006 her first solo exhibition sold out and she has held an exhibition each year since.

My Name is Lizzie Flynn (written by Claire Saxby) is her first book.
