I was raised on faery stories and horror stories....often not a lot of difference between them when you really think about it. My work has evolved from a childhood that was filled with imaginative play and in my head, I'm still the nine year old who used to leave small pieces of cake in the garden for any faeries who might be passing through.
I've been self-employed as a figurative sculptor since 1994. In 2012 I returned to University to pursue my lifelong love of illustration and gain a degree in Visual Communication Design. I now teach in the Illustration/Animation and Communication Design streams at UniSA as well as running sculpting workshops and pursuing my career as an illustrator/sculptor. My interests are children's books, monsters, creature/character design, stop-motion animation and 3D illustration.
I photograph animals in my spare time.
