Creativity was very welcome in my family as I was growing up in the regional town of Ballarat.
I am an author, illustrator, artist and art educator now living in Melbourne. I have enjoyed sharing my creative processes and storytelling with young children for many years. I have published children’s books with Black Dog Books, Lothian and Five Mile Press.
I enjoy developing diverse and layered imagery in my illustrations to extend the storytelling of each project. I especially enjoy expressing emotion through colour and textural surfaces with mixed media, including acrylic, ink, water colour gouache and pencil.
