Cards title 


My cards are positive, colourful and humorous.  I use watercolour and digital collage to create the designs.  Quaint expressions and things kids say inspire the words on the cards.



Books  I have illustrated five books and there a couple at the printers and I am working on one at the moment. The first book I illustrated was A Little Bit, published by Omnibus here in Adelaide.



Handmade things 

 I am constantly experimenting with crafty things.  




I enjoy painting portraits in watercolour.  The portraits are in my ‘big head ‘ style so they are not realistic and everyone looks about 3 years old.
