I’m a full-time illustrator from Wellington, New Zealand.  I’m obsessed with creating beautiful things, from craft to illustration to sewing to IKEA flat packs (no kidding).  I'm predominately a digital artist, but also like to incorporate traditional media such as gouache and watercolour. 

My clients for Children's book illustration have included Hallmark Creative, Oxford University Press, Liontree Publishing and New Frontier Publishing (UK).

I'm represented by Advocate Art and all enquires can be directed to their agency.  Or you can email me at
