Ingrid Banwell is a New Zealand born artist and writer living with her family in Sydney. She holds a Master’s degree with First Class Honors in painting from the Elam School of Fine Arts in Auckland, New Zealand and her artwork hangs in homes and offices around the world. Her three-dimensional work is also featured in several key publications on New Zealand art.
Thanks to travel-hungry genes, she’s lived in Mexico City, Vienna, London and New York.
As an author, Ingrid has been published in Cosmos Online, Andromeda Spaceways and the NSW Writers’ Centre magazine Newswrite as well as numerous online publications. Her story Untangling the Future features in You’re Not Alone - a collection of science fiction short stories edited by Damien Broderick and published by Surinam Turtle Press.
In order to support her art and writing, Ingrid has had a breathless number of jobs including art teacher, market researcher, fundraising manager, librarian, consular public affairs officer and real estate receptionist.
These days, when she’s not teaching, painting, writing, gardening, chauffeuring or nagging teenagers, she’s probably in a car somewhere trying to compress space-time in Sydney traffic jams.
