Based in New Zealand, I have been illustrating children’s books for over twenty years now. Studying art and art history, I have had a passion for drawing and painting all my life.

Over the years I have worked on a wide range of projects from illustration work to posters, blankets and cookie tins. However my career has gone from strength to strength working fulltime on children’s books, magazines, educational publishing and picture books.

Today I continue to illustrate children’s books with different publishers around the globe and have my work published worldwide.

From whimsical to moody and humorous I can confidently interpret scripts and make them come alive.

I have been extremely fortunate to have worked with some wonderful clients from companies including Pearson NZ , Pearson Australia, Harcourts, Highlights magazine, Mc Graw-Hill, Cengage, Oxford University Press, Learning Media, Cleanslate Press, Global Education, Simply Literacy, Macmillan, National Geographic, Sunshine Books and Upstart Press.

Whatever your budget I am happy to discuss any illustration requirements you may have.
