I’m a full-time illustrator from Wellington, New Zealand.  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 Harper Collins UK, Auzou, Hallmark Creative, Oxford University Press, Little Tiger Press/Random Penguin House Publishing, Scholastic UK and New Frontier Publishing (UK & AUS).

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