Girl on Wire

Girl on Wire is a simple yet brilliantly uplifting allegory of a young girl struggling to build her self-esteem and overcome the anxiety that many children feel as they grow – she walks the tightrope, afraid she will fall, but with the support of those she loves, her toes grip the wire and she walks forward, on her own, with a new confidence.

Picture book written by Lucy Estela (author of CBCA shortlisted Suri's Wall), illustrated in oils by Elise Hurst, published by Penguin Books in July 2018. 

The oil paintings were exhibited at Tinning Street Presents in Melbourne in June/July 2018, and the book launched on 30 June.
