Australian Artist and Author living on the beautiful NSW South Coast in the Shoalhaven.
I write, sew, snap (pictures), draw and paint! I am also on Twitter and Google+. I am a self taught artist and have never been to art school. I love images that take me to another place and am inspired by Graeme Base, William Morris, Maurice Sendak, and Tim Burton, just to name a few.
I am also interested in illumination art such as Celtic and medieval texts. I am the creator of "Oscar and the Roses" available in English and "The Owl and the Pussycat" by Edward Lear, at my Blurb.com store. I have also written and illustrated the Druid's Oracle Card Deck and "As the Crow Flies Oracle" card deck (and books that accompany these card decks).
I am a Typography/alphabet enthusiast specialising in illustrations inspired by Illuminated texts and monograms. I do have a selection of my letters available on Etsy.com as Embroidery templates and finished (unframed) works.
My works have appeared in international collections. I am also a quilter, shutter bug too. I do have an Etsy.com store and self published on Lulu.com and Blurb. Some of my art can be bought on textiles / sewing fabric on www.Spoonflower.com.
I was a finalist in the 2017 Bald Archy Prize (Australia) and my book cover illustration of the UNESCO sponsored Fight Illiteracy campaign of “A Bend in the River” is featured as one of 100 artists as part of the Beshart and DoeDoMee project.
I am currently working /collaborating with the University of New Mexico as an illustrator as of February 2018 ( I have a book cover artwork being used for a second edition of "The Writer's Portable Mentor: A Guide to Art, Craft, and the Writing Life by Priscilla Long" release date in September 2018). Also have recently created the Logo for the Gal Tir Dance academy.
I am currently involved with the archival data collection/management using Vernon Software with the Shoalhaven Regional Gallery, NSW, Australia.
