The team at Daisa Publishing may be small but we are mighty!
Collectively we have over 70 years' experience in business. Wayne has been illustrating for over 30 years and we welcomed him to the team in September.

We all bring our own backgrounds, expertise and knowledge not only to the team, but to those we work with side by side during the publishing process.
