I have illustrated for most of my life using different materials to eventually find my own style. I have always wanted to create something and share it with other people. The journey of creating and illustrating a children’s book is the most fulfilling to me. I find illustrations enhance a story and linger in a child’s mind long after the reading. Storytelling through illustration is a unique way I like seeing the world.
There is a great simplicity when working with watercolour pencils that allows me to bring life and colour to my illustrations. I also experiment with different types of paper and I am constantly amazed at the different results that can be achieved. I am interested in exploring any subject but find Australian animals, fantasy, and Science Fiction as my favourite subjects. I am currently working on writing and illustrating my own children’s book. I look forward to the journey.
My first illustrated book is titled “Long Live Us” written by Edel Wignell and published by Interactive Publications Pty Ltd and was published in January 2011.
