ABOUT THE ARTIST
Cooranbong, NSW, Australia
Carol Heuchan has lived ‘on the land’ in rural Australia most of her life—previously on a sheep and cattle property in “The Man from Snowy River” country and now in the Hunter Valley of New South Wales. She trained horses, taught riding, and competed intensively, becoming an international horse judge and commentator. Poetry kind of ‘took over’ about sixteen years ago and, after being Australian Champion Bush Poet twice and winning hundreds of awards, poetry became her full-time profession.She has published five books, six CDs, and has been named Australian Bush Laureate a record nine times;, she brings a broad repertoire that goes from heart wrenching to hilarious!
