Hello and thanks for visiting me here!

You can see I love making both digital pics and painting in gouache, and I also love working with text and type. (I used to be a part-time ticket writer, moons ago). My biggest stylistic trait would be humour and layers of busy-ness/detail in my images. I can be light and fluffy, but also dark, cheeky, naughty, subversive, ironic, kooky. I aim to make people laugh, think and wonder, and I like to be different.

I have a Master of Fine Arts and First Class Honours in fine art (printmaking & drawing) from VCA, a PHd in Op-shopping and collecting domestic oddities, vintage kids books, etc. I have won many national awards for my ink drawings and am represented in many public collections, including The National Gallery of Australia. I have recently won an honorable mention in the 2016 3x3 Illustration Annual #13 Professional Show; and have work published in The Guardian, UK weekend magazine, Canary Press, and worked on super fun liscensing projects in the US.
