About me

 

Hi, thanks for dropping by. I'm an illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia. These days I spend most of my time illustrating picture books and I've also written a few too which I find a bit more challenging but I have a crack.. I've also drawn for magazines and newspapers all over the world.
