Born in 1877 in Kent, United Kingdom, May arrived in Australia at the age of four. She drew and painted as a child and went on to study art in Western Australia and in the UK before settling in Sydney as a children’s books author and illustrator.
2016 marked 100 years of May Gibbs’ first children’s cook Gumnut Babies and 2018 celebrated the Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie centenary.
On her passing in 1969 she bequeathed 50% of the copyright of all her works to The Northcott Society and 50% to Cerebral Palsy Alliance. Through her foresight and generosity, proceeds from the sale of May Gibbs products have supported thousands of Australian children with disability and their families.
