Australian Artist and Author. I write, sew, snap (pictures), draw and paint! I am also on Twitter and Google+. I am a self taught artist and have never been to art school. I love images that take me to another place and am inspired by Graeme Base, William Morris, Maurice Sendak, and Tim Burton, just to name a few. I am also interested in illumination art such as Celtic and medieval texts.

I am a Typography/alphabet enthusiast specialising in illustrations inspired by Illuminated texts and monograms. I DO HAVE AN ETSY STORE but for Card Decks and Books only – no more physical items or pattern downloads. I also sell originals on*www.Bluethumb.com.au* and Ebay and Saatchi Online but you can drop me a line here if you see a work (if I still have it!) for sale.
My works have appeared in international collections. I am also a quilter, shutter bug too. I do have an Etsy.com store and self published on Lulu.com and Blurb. Some of my art can be bought on textiles / sewing fabric on www.Spoonflower.com.
I have recently been a top 50 finalist in the 2014 Bald Archy Prize (Australia) and my book cover illustration of the UNESCO sponsored Fight Illiteracy campaign of “A Bend in the River” is featured as one of 100 artists as part of the Beshart and DoeDoMee project.
The oracle card deck below are written and illustrated by me and can be found at the Etsy, Lulu and Blurb links at the bottom of my profile bio on this page.
My designs and some originals are for sale. So if you see something that I still have the original textiles or fine art for sale, drop me a bubblemail!
