melbourne Artist Illustrator
One of my favourite ways for working is with pencil, as drawing is my first love.
I especially love drawing maps, creating fantasy worlds and characters. Maps are my favourite!
A personal obsession with architecture, history and humanity fuels many of my drawings. I find world building a real joy.
Much of my artwork speaks to a deep and soulful human experience.

Character Design and
I love designing characters and worlds from my imagination or from an author's text. It's such a wonderful thing to be entrusted with the task to bring another's world into being. Manifesting that is magic!
Most of the illustrations above are from my own, yet unpublished books. If you would like to know more please let me know.
I studied fine art for ten years and attended hundreds of hours of life drawing classes. Drawing people from life is an essential part of my practice.
Sometimes characters come directly from those sketches, such as this person I drew at a bar one night who turned into a solider in my fantasy world!
