Gwynneth’s illustrations make people smile and think. She portrays joy and suspense, drawing on childhood memories. She has an ability to develop concepts into drawings of interest and perspective that add their own story to text.
Gwynneth draws both animals and people, she majored in Plant and Wildlife illustration in her BAVA, and often does life drawing. Her styles extend to realism, portraiture, cartoon and scribble.
Illustrating children’s books since 2014, Gwynneth’s first with Susan Whelan ‘Don’t Think About Purple Elephants’ was shortlisted in the Australian speech Pathology Award in 2016 and placed on the Premiers Reading Challenge in NSW in 2017. More illustrated picture books include The Great Sock Secret, Patch and Ruby, and Dance with Me, released October 2016 and The Chalk Rainbow in 2017.
Gwynneth loves draw live for kids, and has at events including Newcastle Writers Festival, CBCA Lunch with the Stars and at school visits.
