Book signing event
Amazing the reaction to 2 old ladies signing books with emotive words and expressive images of the human form! How can 2 oldies -well over 66 - know about LOVE and LOVING ................well between us we have been married to our respective husbands (1 each) for 90 years! so our life experiences have formed the basis for our beautiful books.
Mocco was born in Germany and followed her husband to Darwin Australia in the 1950's .........at teh time darwin was a frontier town and very different from Germany. What a shock for a new bride who spoke on English. Soon she began to teah herself English (Australian) by reading and writing and her early work was soon published as she poured her feelings into her writing. 7 books later she is now a recognised successful author.
I am a visual artist with a career in fashion and costume design before having my first exhibition in the 1970's. Now many, many years and exhibitions and prizes and books later I can call myself a successful artist. My art reflects my life experiences. From working in the Pacific Islands, as a wife and mother, exhibiting in Italy and my extensive travels around Australia.
So when we have book signing events we can answer any questions about our books and why 2 old ladies decided to write about LOVE and LOVING. We have experienced life and want to share it.
