  • Illustration format: I work in Affinity Designer and Adobe Photoshop. My illustrations are primarily vector-based, with textures added separately. This allows for upsizing with minimal pixelation and easy customisation of individual elements within the illustration to suit client requirements. 
  • Style: Inspired by Disney's mid-century era, my focus is on children’s book illustration, character creation and educational books. I am a part time teaching assistant at a primary school, and the children’s joyful energy provides endless inspiration for my artwork.
  • Background: I started my art career as a fine art photographer and have won both national and international awards in this field. My photography is represented by Lethbridge Gallery Brisbane and three of my works are in the permanent collection of MAMA Museum Albury. However, I have always had a love for illustration. I have taken several art courses and illustration courses, all of which rated me top of class either by competition or review.
  • Studio Location: I live on the Sunshine Coast, QLD with my husband, two teenagers and three dogs.
