A little about me...

I am a lifelong artist and recently turned illustrator and designer. I graduated from UniSA School of Art with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art in 2009 and later studied teaching. Over the past 2 years, I have been developing skills in graphic design and surface pattern design. 

My work celebrates the beauty and diversity found in nature and our connection to the earth. I am influenced by botanical art, literature and past & present art + design movements.

I am constantly drawn to discovering new techniques and methods which allow me to evolve my skills. At present watercolour, gouache and ink are my favourite mediums to work with. 

Please get in touch with me here if you would like to know more about my services or if you are interested in commissioning me for a freelance project.
