After spending 25 years in the advertising and publishing industries as a graphic designer, art director, studio manager, contractor and educator, I returned to study and completed a Bachelor of Illustration in 2017, specialising in Natural History & Wildlife illustration. My artwork is crafted with an intense love for the beauty of nature, predominantly focusing on Australia's own unique native flora and fauna. My work offers the opportunity to explore and experience harmony with plants and animals by creating detailed traditional illustrations and digital representations of their beguiling intricacies.
I love to create imagery focused on endangered, rare and little known native species with the aim to generate awareness and provide education through my illustrations. It is my hope to encourage fascination and mindfulness towards our natural environment and the diversity of the inhabitants that reside within mother nature's realm with my playful and evocative work. I am available for freelance projects, teaching opportunities, collaborations and commissions and promote environmentally conscious ethics by using art materials created by Australian small-businesses and utilising recycled framing and packaging wherever possible.
