BELOW ARE SAMPLES FROM MY PORTFOLIO
My style is based on a long tradition of drawing, with a deep attention to detail & a strong sense of design.
My work is both playful & informative, with influences from vintage illustration, folk painting & retro children's books.
I work happily at a high standard of skill in a broad range of mediums: digital, tempera, acrylic, gesso, pencil, ink & watercolour.
From decorating a shop window to a tiny web logo I like making original work to suit any situation.
A little about me
For over 30 years I have worked as a freelance illustrator & author and designer specialising in Children’s books.
My work has been published broadly in Australia & recognised by the International Board of Book Illustration.
I have achieved residencies at: Varuna Writers Centre, Bundanon, the Tyrone Guthrie centre in Ireland, & Hill End where I had time to pursue projects & create new material. I have taught advanced illustration at Sydney Graphics Collage & have been a guest lecturer at TAFE's & Universities.
I have spoken in my capacity as both author & illustrator at the International Teachers Federation of English conference & at the Sydney Writers Festival. I also work as a freelance appraiser of Children's book manuscripts for the Manuscript Appraisal Agency.
I live in the misty Blue Mountains of Australia & work from home.
