I am an artist that is only really happy when doing something that involves painting, drawing or playing with paper. I started as a graphic designer with a BA in Visual Communications from Sydney College of the Arts.
I've worked designing magazines in Sydney and the UK, illustrated two picture books (for Walker Books Aust.), cards, posters and paintings.
Many of my works are inspired from my local area which is a beautiful seaside town on the south coast of Australia. I often use birds as symbols and love producing whimsical portraits of people I meet. I paint and sometimes use collage for my pieces on paper, creating detailed images that ultimately tell a story.
I also have a range of cards for sale and tea towels available on Etsy here
If you'd like more information or would like to purchase a piece, please contact me via my contact page.
Love to hear from you!
