I was selected to illustrate this winning poem. Then our combined posters were displayed in Qantas toilets around Australia. Unusual competition, but I like unusual!
For many years I wrote and illustrated for all the major occasions like Mother's Day, Father's Day, Christmas and more...

Animal illy's for, would you believe, a pet birthday greeting card! Kooky fun.
Cover design for teenage girl diary. In high school I had a crazy cool calendar designed with sassy teenage banter on it. Loved it. This cover was inspired from that 80's fun.

Close up of doorway girl for Red Room poetry comp. Yes I can use pastel colours! I even paint in them sometimes!
Aha! A watercolour! Yes I do paint – I love to work with ink, watercolour, gouache and acrylics.
