After spending 25 years in the advertising and publishing industries as a graphic designer, art director, studio manager, contractor and educator, I have finally returned to specialise in art and illustration. My work is crafted with an intense love for the beauty that surrounds us every day whether it be Australian native flora and fauna or our beloved pet family members. It brings me great pleasure to offer the opportunity for others to explore and experience plants and animals, with all their beguiling intricacies, through my detailed traditional illustrations and stylised digital representations.
I promote environmentally conscious ethics by using art materials created by Australian small-businesses and recycled framing and packaging wherever possible. It is my hope to encourage fascination and mindfulness towards our precious natural environment and preserve joyful memories with my playful and evocative work. I am available for freelance projects, collaborations, commissions and teaching opportunities. Pet portrait commissions usually require booking at least 6 months in advance so please plan ahead for your bespoke painting for you or a loved one.
