The studio renovation is complete, and I am currently working on a large series of works towards a solo exhibition in 2014.
I am available for personal commissions for a limited period of time. View this link for more information. Here are some recent images of commissioned artworks.

A portrait of a beautiful woman who has overcome a long battle with a life threatening illness to become the most inspiring and wonderful person anyone could ever know.

I am excited to announce that I’ve won a bronze “Highly Commended” award at the Illustrators Australia 2012 awards for the artwork “I Don’t Drink Tea”.
I’ve got two books coming out in May and I’m currently spending my days working on renovating a caravan into an artist studio.
Happy creating. x
“Two Turtle Doves”
papercut window display for the 12 Days of Christmas Trail

8th December 2011
Months are flying by. I’ve finished a book that took me around 4 months to illustrate, and can’t wait to reveal that to you when it is on shelves in May 2012.
In other news I’ve just finished a few intensive weeks creating an amazing papercut design for Roc Candy in the piccadilly arcade Perth. It is up for view between the 2nd of December and the 24th of December. In total there are 12 windows to view across Perth created by artists like myself.
A few amazing facts about the papercut.
48 hours of cutting over 6 days
4 hours of installation / de-install
All cut by hand
1 scalpel, 4 blades
12 sheets of paper as well as small coloured sheets for the bird details
Window bauble decals have shapes that match the xmas themed roc candy. The two turtle doves match the colour and shape of the special turtle dove roc candy made for the event
The panel measures 1.9m x 2.8m and the side panel measures 1.9m x 44cm.
One more commissioned painting to finish and I’m taking an extended leave to finish some new paintings, starting with an artists residency in Beverley in January.
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a lovely New Year.
