I am an artist and author-illustrator who is passionate about science, the environment, and helping diverse kids find their voices though art and literature.
I graduated from Claremont Art School with a Diploma in Fine Art and Murdoch University with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Community Development. I also have a Certificate in Tinkering from Stanford University, which sparked a love of using art to teach science. I have run STEAM (STEM plus Art) classes and a Maker Club for curious kids.
I’ve worked for 10 years as a Community Artist. During this time I completed a bunch of primary school artist residencies and community murals as recipient of a CANWA Catalyst Grant. I was also recipient of a UWA grant that enabled the building of a community art studio for artists with disabilities.
I now work from home, sometimes in my studio, sometimes outside in my garden. I am mother to a sassy 14 year old, door-opener to three cheeky felines, and corn-provider to a flock of feisty chooks.
