Artist, Illustrator

I am an illustrator, working in ink, pencil and paper. I love working with people’s stories – reflects their life/tales and weaving in my own inspiration.

I draw with ink, watercolour and paper cuts, and seem to draw a lot of bears (and balloons). I create portraits of magic moments for lovers and families; children’s books, card designs and business designs. Inspiration comes from nature, rainy city streets, kids books, dreams and memories.

I’ve been working as a freelance illustrator for many years, but since the birth of this little lady (in the picture!) I’ve gotten serious about it, and loved working with ad agencies, publishing companies, magazines and other business clients. I remain utterly in love with the picture book, and am working on my first one along with some board books for babies and other projects.

I’m based in Melbourne and a member of Illustrators Australia (also the editor of their member magazine Outline), The Style File and SCBWI and I’ve illustrated for magazines, ad agencies, group shows and children’s books.
