About

Photo on 2014-12-09 at 11.15Who am I? I’m a graphic designer, illustrator and printmaker. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communication from RMIT in 1988 (back when graphics was done on paper).

What do I do? I create graphic design for print, web and signage. I make linocut prints, and other illustrative works on paper. I love making visual things that communicate; I produce brochures, cards, book illustrations, CD covers, logos, signs and limited edition art prints.

It all started on 22 February in 1990 in the kitchen of a Genoa farmhouse in Far East Gippsland, Victoria, Australia.

The Design Desk was an old laminex table pushed against the window with a view of the Genoa River. I was freelancing, producing line illustrations of rainforest flora and fauna with my set of Rotring technical pens.

Today, my studio is an old garage at our Drouin home. My husband had converted this into a space for himself but after a while, when all my drawings and art materials were taking over the house, he gave up the space to me.

  • It didnt stop snowing the whole time we skied up
    It didn’t stop snowing the whole time we skied up Wright’s Creek. There is something totally in the moment about making tracks with your goggles fogged up and the snow hitting your helmeted head; it’s just you and the elements ( and 4 other people including  @jimoates2010  . Never ski alone ).
  • We skied along the banks of the Snowy River There
    We skied along the banks of the Snowy River. There was a strong wind and the clouds moved fast.
  • My Genoa Peak linocut was purchased as a gift this
    My Genoa Peak linocut was purchased as a gift this week by a lovely person who visited the studio. . . . The peak is significant to me. I went to live near it when I graduated from RMIT and first left home. A few years down the track, on a day trip, my 3rd child was momentarily lost there causing a frenzied 10 minute search. Genoa Peak is in Far East Gippsland. Just below its rocky summit, Streaked Rock Orchids cling to pink granite boulders and the trees grow out of impossible fissures.
