Biography

To earn a living as an illustrator in a small market such as Australia you need to be versatile. My folio reflects this. The shrinking world created by the internet allows me to work on interesting projects anywhere in the world. My first picture book was published in 1990, ‘The Ant Explorer.’ Since then I have been working non-stop for trade and educational publishers on a wide range of picture books, chapter books and text books across all ages.
