About

I am a Sydney-based exhibiting visual artist, art teacher and published illustrator specialising in hand-created techniques. My work covers a variety of styles, subject matter and mediums including: watercolours; pen and ink; colour and graphite pencil; collage; mixed media; printmaking and photography.

Working for many years in the book and magazine publishing industries, my illustrations have been published in a number of primary, secondary, tertiary educational books and other academic publications; fiction books and national gardening magazines and books including Burke’s BackyardYour Garden, Gardens & Outdoor Living and Don Burke’s books, Organic and Herbs & Spices.

In recent years I’ve been concentrating more on my visual arts work and to date have held 4 solo exhibitions, 4 joint exhibitions and have participated in over 40 group exhibitions.

Since 2015 I’ve been teaching watercolour painting and drawing classes/workshops at Scratch Art Space in Sydenham NSW, and throughout 2016/2017, regular weekly classes at The Bakehouse Studio in Marrickville NSW as well as teaching one-on-one private lessons to some of my students.

I am available for illustration and other commissions; teaching watercolour painting and drawing (either with groups in a class/workshop situation or for individual tuition); and freelance exhibition curating.
