Trisha Burkitt Dixon is a writer and a photographer with a passion for landscape, literature, art and history. She has written, edited, photographed and co-authored a number of books, has edited journals and contributed as a columnist and writer/photographer to various publications and lectured widely within Australia and abroad. Trisha is on the Board of the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, on the National Management Committee of the Australian Garden History Society and a company member of Winifred West Schools Limited.

Linking her passions of literature and landscape, Trisha's recent book Under the Spell of the Ages was published by the National Library of Australia. Trisha is currently working on a book to be published by Murdoch Books. She has spent 20 years documenting the life of Australia's leading landscape designer, Edna Walling and spent some years working on a private commission to document one of Australia's most interesting pastoral properties where our only Nobel Prize laureate for Literature, Patrick White wrote his first novel, Banjo Paterson wrote his last poem for and poet Barcroft Boake wrote a number of poems about. Research for this book led her to Greece and the island of Hydra where she now takes literary and photographic workshops.

Trisha has also worked as a pilot and as a presenter on ABC Television and is a landscape consultant and heritage adviser. She lives in an early colonial house on her historic grazing property at the foothills of the Snowy Mountains.
