Overview

I am an illustrator working within the children’s publishing and entertainment industries. With a strong sense of whimsy, I am inspired by the natural world to tell stories with a strong narrative and engaging characters. Through illustration, I strive to ignite imaginations, encourage creativity and inspire everyone to seek out the mysterious and magical in the everyday. I've been working as an illustrator and graphic designer for over 10 years across education, medical, government and commercial industries, specialising in children's illustration in 2016.

When working with clients, the first thing to get right is the briefing stage, where we work out the technical details as well as the story look and feel, so we are all on the same page. The next phase, and perhaps the most important step, is the concepting and sketch phase. This step includes everything from character design, thumbnails to more detailed sketches of page spreads, individual illustrations or cover designs. And finally, comes the finished artwork, provided ready for production, whether digital, printed or both. At all stages, I strive to make sure my authors or production team is kept up-to-date with updates, drafts and clear communication to deliver illustrations that tug at emotions and will have viewers coming back again and again.

All projects will be quoted in AUD (Australian Dollars).
