Bronwyn first began illustrating childrens' books in 1993 with Dianna Kidd's 'Fat and Juicy Place' which was shortlisted in the Children's Book Council: Book of the Year Awards for Younger Readers and was the winner of the Australian Multicultural Childrens's Book Award.
Bronwyns illustrations for OOderoo's 'Stradbroke Dreamtime' have received world attention and were described in the 1993 Notable Books as providing a modern context through which the spirit and spirituality of the stories echo with the power of authenticity. Bronwyn was selected as the Australian Candidate for the 1994 UNICEF- Ezra Jack Keats International Award for Excellence in Children's Book Illustrations for 'Stradbroke Dreamtime'.
In 1997 Bronwyn illustrated several books written by Sally Morgan. These were 'Just a Little Brown Dog', 'Dan's Grandpa' and 'In Your Dreams' all published by Fremantle Arts Centre Press.
HarperCollins published 'Dirrangun' in 1994, 'Minah' in 1995 and 'The Whalers' in 1996. These stories form an important part of Indigenous Literature as they are representations of the continuation of storytelling in Aboriginal communities.
In 1999-2000, Bronwyn illustrated 2 books by Katrina Germein, 'Big Rain Coming' and 'Leaving' both published by Roland Harvey Books. These are simple stories told by Germein who took inspiration whilst teaching Minyerri, a remote Aboriginal community in the Northern Territory. This project was a correlation involving Indigenous and non-indigenous women working together and 'Big Rain Coming' was commended as Notable Book by the Childrens Book Council of Australia. In 2000 Bronwyn was awarded the third May Gibbs Fellowship by the Dromkeen Childrens Literature Foundation. Bronwyn is currently working towards writing and illustrating her own stories which will be published by Allen and Unwin Publishers.
