Illustration and design with character

Illustration & Design


I’m an artist, illustrator and designer working in a beautiful bayside town near Melbourne, Australia. I love creating designs with a focus on colour, character and story. I have been creating artwork for publishers and businesses since 2011. I also love to share my skills through teaching online and in workshops. When I’m not drawing and designing I love to sew and cycle.

How can I help you?

I love creating artwork that makes people smile. It’s a piece of packaging, a label, a greetings card or art print that you like having around in your house. For companies and businesses it’s design that expresses a sense of fun.

Children’s Book Illustration

I have illustrated a large variety of children’s picture books and educational material covering a diverse range of subject matter. Publishers include The National Library of Australia, Hachette Children’s Books
