Announcement    My name is Ronella and I make shadow puppets and marionettes and write stories based on endangered ecosystems for Telling Tales. Telling Tales has just started in November 2017 and my first product line is about the Borneo rainforest, a place close to my heart as I grew up in Malaysia.

I create the world of Telling Tales from my little corner of our open-planned living room in Melbourne that I share with my husband and two children.

The beginning

Hi! I’m Ronella and Telling Tales is my third baby, born out of parenthood and my love of theatre and nature. I write, illustrate and handmake my stories, characters and scenes from my little corner of our open-planned living room in Melbourne. Here I attempt, sometimes successfully, to care for the kids, run the house and create the world of Telling Tales. There are moments when my ideas come to life, the family gets fed and the house stays clean. There are also moments when progress is hard won. There are tears, sometimes even from the kids. Dinner is late and I stepped on Leggo.

But I have tales to tell. And I want my children to hear them because I love the mysterious Borneo rainforest and its quirky characters. Because my childhood legs ran on dirt tracks through jungle and plantation in Malaysia. Because the Borneo rainforest is disappearing. Go to the Telling Tales website for my stories http://tellingtales.com.au.

My shadow puppets and marionettes are odd and flamboyant and as individual as the real characters are. I hope they will capture our childrens' imaginations.

I try to make every fibre of Telling Tales count. From the balancing act of working from home so I can be present for the kids, the renewable energy that powers our home and Telling Tales, and the materials that make every product. I detail the materials that go into each product because I want to know my money is supporting the solution and not the problem. And you probably do too.
