Hi there!
I’ve been illustrating picture books since my first publication Little Platypus (Nette Hilton, CBCA Notable Book) in 2000. Since then, I’ve had more than a dozen picture books published worldwide, including award-winning picture book and stage production Boom Bah! (Phil Cummings), Ballroom Bonanza – an animal alphabet picture book that I both wrote and illustratedDinosaurs Love Cheese and Good Dog Hank (Jackie French), and Pooka (Carol Chattaway) winning the 2013 YABBA award. To view the full list of all of publications and awards, head over to my Books page.

I’ve been teaching picture book illustration since 2002. In 2016, I began producing a series of online classes character development classes with Skillshare, and became one of Skillshare top 30 teachers. I’m now excited to announce the launch of my very first comprehensive (independent) 8-week Picture Book Illustration e-Course.
