Di Stefano, Gillian: Australia. 1992, 1996, 2000
With a background in psychology, drama and education, storytelling seemed a natural development in Gill's life. Her stories come from a wide variety of sources including ancient traditions, history and personal experience. She has created original stories to frame and accent traditional ones, the folk tales of various cultures having found a deep place in her heart. Gill's work takes her into a wide range of situations where she presents, teaches and creates stories of the spirit, they may be tales of powerful deeds, stories infused with humour or tinged with sorrow. Some may even weave a spell of heart-felt magic. Although one day might see Gill working with troubled adolescents and their families and another might put her behind the lectern at a national conference, her great love remains simply telling stories - from the concert hall to the campfire.
