I am Australian, born in Papua New Guinea in November 1967. I specialise in ex-libris/bookplate design and my work has been published both in Australia and Portugal, also exhibited in Poland and Mexico. I have been a member of The New Australian Bookplate Society of NSW since 2010. My first illustrated children’s book ‘The Cassowary’s Gift’ by author Pam Skadins, was shortlisted by The Wilderness Society of Australia’s 2017 Environment Award for Children’s Literature. I have completed illustrations for a second children’s book and continue to enjoy my studies in the art of cartooning. I am currently working on a children’s theme mural, which I hope will be completed by Christmas! I love bush walking, qigong, music and reading about all forms of art.
