A little bit about me I'm a children's book lover, draw-er and reader based in Melbourne, who also creates work for card companies, picture books, original paintings, prints and all types of different client projects. I love watercolours, but getting more and more into combining digital work and tinker with oils, pencils and other bits and bobs I can get my mitts on. I worked in publishing sales for many years, and after bringing a baby into the world decided to get serious about my illustration work!
