My original water colour illustrations capture a child's imagination in a colourful way. I make big, bright, colourful paintings.

About me
I am a self taught illustrator who would love the oppurtunity to team up with an author to create something really special in the world of children's books.

I am a mother of three young children. I have challenged myself by writing and illustrating my own children's books whilst at home.

Maybe one day I will self publish them; I don't know. I have also illustrated for a self published local author.

I paint in watercolour, acrylic and oil. I also use pastel, chalk pencil and ink.

Once I have the manuscript...

- I will listen and discuss what you may be picturing.

- It is important for us to negotiate a price or royalty so there is no confusion. We then can agree on when to have the illustrations finished by.


- I will then storyboard in my head for a few days before I pencil anything in. This is when my creative head goes crazy. Then I sketch very rough characters, backgrounds and so on, keeping regular contact with you.

- Then the creative, hands-on work begins to bring the story alive.

Quality Children's Book Illustration

Quality Children's Book Illustration for over 11 years


Wow, what a great site. I'm a Melbourne (Australia) based illustrator and have been illustrating books for over 11 years now.

I especially enjoy the process of going from rough to colour and bringing the characters to life - it's just like magic!

The Australian bush is one of my favourite subjects; there are so many beautiful native animals here, and the landscape is full of amazing colour and texture... perfect to illustrate!

I work primarily with watercolours and ink but also enjoy gouache and oils when I have the chance to exhibit.

My characters have been said to be "full of life" and bring a real sense of lightheartedness to the reader.

I love the challenge of new projects, and enjoy connecting with other artists working in the field all over the world!

I look forward to connecting with you!

Sweet dreams for kids illustrations

It may be cold winter, but who cares when the dreams are sweet and beautiful.

I want all kids to be happy, and if a book with nice pictures can help, I am happy too.

I create handmade images using watercolors. Every image is special.

If you want me to illustrate your book, you probably know how your characters should look. But we could try to make them real together. Best regards.

It's all about animals!

My work features soft watercolours and pastels.

I also paint bold coloured animals that can look like a mix of zebra, rhino or fish-scaled pandas.
I love to draw or paint animals that are happy and colourful.

I believe in drawing animals from a positive and educational perspective. My goal is to teach children to respect and love animals!
