Since reconnecting with my long-lost illustration skills in 2014, I've been busy learning new techniques, and currently work in watercolour, pencil, ink, monoprinting and digital.

In 2014, I won a highly commended nod in the Emerging Illustrator Mentorship with the Australian Society of Authors, and was fortunate to receive a brief mentorship with Sue deGennaro. I'm constantly learning and growing, and loving this parallel creative journey, alongside my beloved writing.

My clients include:
  • EK Books
  • Hardie Grant Travel
  • Flow Magazine
  • The National Library of Australia
  • HarperCollins Children's Books 
  • private commissions

You can see some of my work on my Pinterest page right here or my most recent work in a little blog post here.
