A freelance illustrator based in Melbourne Australia, drawing from nature, science, prehistory, gothic horror and science fiction. I have an original style and a particular facility for charming character illustrations and diagrams explaining technical and natural processes. Not two strengths you would normally expect to find side by side, but I enjoy them both so there you go. I have contributed to picture books, chapter books, educational text books, readers, book covers, maps and diagrams. My customers include local business and industry, educational and trade publishers, and government. I enjoy researching facts to get the illustration right, especially when this involves talking with technicians and scientists.
