Barbara Pyett lives in Pearcedale, country Victoria, Australia with her artist husband, Christopher, and Millie, their Spoodle. Childhood sweethearts; later following Christopher to art school in the 1960s. Their lives linked up thirty years on and they were married at McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park on 30th June, 2000 with their five children in attendance.
After many travels, Barbara completed her degree in her early 40s and taught in special schools in Canberra before coming to Victoria to marry Christopher. She now divides her time between writing, gardening and enjoying her grandchildren, with occasional trips to visit family.
Barbara has written her memoir, ‘Enduring Threads’, as yet unpublished. She had her first children’s book published in 2011, a Christmas story, titled, ‘Lily’s Wish.’ She continues to write for children and is looking into possible ways of publishing her work.
