Jedda grew up in a small town called Ulverstone on the island of Tasmania, Australia. She now lives on the coast of Victoria, Australia, with her husband, two daughters and a son, a nervous dachshund, a naughty border collie, a couple of cats, a few chickens, and a rather bitey cockatiel.

Jedda trained as a graphic designer, the manual cut and paste way, but always aspired to become a children's book illustrator and author. 

She ran children's art and craft workshops for many years. The interaction with her young students, a passion for her craft as well as family life and, importantly, a discerning eye for 'these' innocuous little moments in life, all contribute to her creative momentum. Jedda offers her young readership, page-turning, flap-lifting, whimsical and imaginative illustrations and stories.

Her books have been published in many languages including English, French, Dutch, Greek, Italian, Korean and Chinese.
