Thank you for stopping by.
I am a Melbourne based illustrator and designer.
My love of hiking and bird watching is often reflected in the work I create. I adore Australian wildlife and often make this a theme of the work I undertake.
In 2020 my love of illustrating natural wonders and hiking has seen two new exciting commissions arise through my local council (details soon to be released!)
At the start of 2019 I accepted a fabulous new ongoing opportunity to be a Studio Illustrator for Sketch Group. In this role I create original sketch video storyboards which are filmed and edited to create in-house and public videos for different organisations to educate, promote and communicate ideas.
Since 2017 I have been the official illustrator for the Melbourne based ballet school Wonder Garden Dance Theatre and enjoy ongoing collaborations for posters and teaching resources for this company.
My first children's printed book - a remake of "The House in the Tree" by Beverly Randell (published by Cengage Publishing) was released in 2017. Prior to this book I illustrated the children's e-book: "The Day Jake Logan Robertson Ran Out of Hugs" (written by A. Nicky Hjort and published by Jetblack Publishing - 2015).
I illustrated a baby elephant mascot for Flo Nasal Spray which can be seen in chemists Australia wide. Since 2017 fans of Flo the baby elephant have seen her return in chemists across Australia with various colouring and activity sheets. In 2018 Flo featured in her very own calendar!
I continue to work with different clients on all kinds of illustration projects including theatrical posters, logo design, album artwork as well as being regularly commissioned for custom personal portraits.
I seek out opportunities to grow as an artist and as an all round creative being. Apart from my love of drawing Australian flora and fauna I have a deep love of drawing faces - particularly children and fantasy based characters.
I am a graduate of CATC in Melbourne and graduated with a diploma in graphic design specialising in illustration.
I am a proud member of Illustrators Australia. Check out my page and other amazing folios of Australian artists here:
