Illustration is something I have intended to pursue as a career since I was a child. However, I really enjoy scenic detours, and thus ended up spending far too long at university and graduated from UNSW with a B.Music (hons)/B.Education. From there, I decided to become an illustrating chocolate queen, and manage a delicious chocolate shop when not painting. After undertaking a course in Picture Book Illustration by Donna Rawlins and Wayne Harris, I have recently finished my first picture book, Flossie the Fairy (written by Nancy Watson, Little Steps Publishing)! Flossie’s sequel, Flossie Catches a Star, will be out November 16.
I’m also a member of SCBWI and ASA.
