I grew up in Adelaide and studied at the Adelaide Central School of Art, and the University of South Australia, graduating with a Bachelor of Design (Illustration). I’ve been working as an illustrator for nearly 20 years (which makes me feel a little old). For much of that time I have worked as a freelancer for ad agencies, design studios, newspapers and magazines. Increasingly though my path has shifted to illustrating children’s books. I like to work in a variety of media, but I have a soft spot for acrylics.

When I’m not illustrating I enjoy riding (sans lycra) and swimming. I live in Adelaide with my partner and 2 daughters (who are great swimmers) and a cat (who can not swim).
