Deb grew up on a hobby farm with a large veggie patch surrounded by fruit trees. She is the youngest of six children. Drawing and creating have always been a big part of her life. As a child her mother said she was ‘off with the fairies’ in her own little dream world. Dancing about in dress ups and talking to imaginary friends. Deb illustrated her first children’s book The Golden Thread in 2018. Since then she has illustrated the junior reader series What Zola Did with Penguin Books Australia and two more picture books, Pear Of Hope – EK Books, All Dogs Bark – Windy Hollow Books and more to come in 2022 and 2023. She has also worked with agencies designing greeting cards, children’s crockery and pet accessories. She lives in Melbourne, Australia with her husband, three children, an energetic border collie, a pure white rabbit and a bright yellow canary.
