Biographical Note

Ian Templeman was born in Perth in 1938. From 1959-68 he taught graphic art at secondary and tertiary level and from 1969-70 he was the National Executive Officer for the Australian Society for Education through the Arts. In 1971 he became the Assistant to the Director of the Festival of Perth and in 1973 he became the Director of the Fremantle Arts Centre. During his time at Fremantle he founded and became Chief Executive of the Fremantle Arts Centre Press which not only introduced many interesting WA writers to a wider public (including Elizabeth Jolley and Sally Morgan) but also established a reputation for quality printing. From 1989 to 1997 Ian Templeman was the Assistant Director-General, Cultural and Educational Services at the National Library of Australia. In 1997 he established the Molongolo Press which published several volumes of poetry before concentrating its efforts on greeting cards. In 1999 Ian Templeman became Head of Publishing, Distribution and Imaging for the ANU's Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies where one of his main responsibilities was running Pandanus Books. The ANU decided to close down this operation in 2006.

In addition to his professional career, Ian Templeman has served on numerous arts committees including the Festival of Perth Visual Arts Committee, 1970-88, the National Inquiry into the Crafts, 1973-75, the WA Art Council, 1972-76, the WA Literary Fund, 1975-82, the Australian Gallery Directors' Council, 1978-80, the Australia Council, 1982-87, the Council of the National Library of Australia, 1987-89, the Public Lending Right Committee, 1988-90, and the ACT Cultural Council of which he was a member, 1992-93, and of which he was the elected Chairman, 2002-04.

Ian Templeman has been honoured for his achievements by the award of an AM in 1989 for services to art and literature and by election to the Australian Academy of the Humanities in 2004. He has published three books of poetry and poems. Articles and book reviews by Ian Templeman have appeared in numerous Australian journals and newspapers including The Canberra Times, Southerly, Island, Westerly, the Fremantle Arts Review and Kunapipi.

Ian Templeman's wife Romola is an artist whose artwork was used for the covers of several Molongolo Press books and for many of the greeting cards published by the Press.
