Australian writer and illustrator.

I love this creative life.

Love makes me spend hours on my work, teaching a picture to sing.

Love keeps me up till 2am, the hours flying past in a blur while I try to bring out the colours and shapes of a story.

Love drives me to learn more every day, so that my work will be the best it can be.

All my pictures are stories. I hope you enjoy them.
