Welcome to my website.   

After completing my Graphic Design University studies in 1989, I began illustrating professionally.

I have illustrated a vast amount of books during this time for Australia's leading publishers, as well as numerous Illustrations, designs and advertising concepts for well known companies in Australia and abroad.

My work has featured in products for such companies as: Coca-Cola, Spalding, Holeproof, Moose Toys, The Promotions Factory, Funtastic, Riot Art and Craft, Coles Myer, Everlast, C & M Brick, Solomons Flooring, Sleepmaker, Advanced Hair.

My work consists of black and white line, black and white wash, graphite pencil and full colour illustrations.
 I cover most subject matter and my style varies from cartoon to semi-realistic as well as realistic. 

Please browse through my work and "contact me" via the details provided should you require my services.

RUN TREE RUN written by Kelly Alsop

Based in Cape York Peninsula Queensland, this chidren’s book has eighteen vibrant illustrations of the rainforest and its animals. A gentle, wise and old tree encourages a Sugar Glider to look for a new home before the mining comes. Scared and alone, the Sugar Glider starts looking for a new home, despite the fact it is daytime. The tree helps other animals too: A Rhinoceros Beetle climbs its branches and is blown away, far away from the mine site. A Cassowary, a flightless bird that is native to the tropical rainforests of North Eastern Australia, is also featured as a loyal friend to the tree.
