Quokka Selfie and Escape from the Studio

A quokka selfie was among the highlights during a brief holiday from my studio.

Two weeks exploring Western Australian beaches and karri forests reminded me how lucky I am to live in this remote part of the world.

Refreshed and refocused I’m back in the studio finishing off my latest picture book with Walker Books.

I look forward to showing sneak peaks from this new book soon.

Balloon House Illustration For IBBY Australia

Work in progress (from a couple of weeks ago). This design was created for the International Board of Books – IBBY Australia’s Perth quiz night.

IBBY Australia allowed me to select a theme, so I chose a balloon house because – well – balloon houses are awesome…

The illustration was created with ink overlaid by watercolour.

See the finished version here.

IBBY Australia’s Perth Quiz Night – Poster Design

A fun design created for the International Board of Books IBBY Australia Perth’s branch’s quiz night.

I was given complete freedom in designing this poster. That in mind I selected to illustrate a balloon house (yes, my dream home if I can’t have a treehouse). The painting was created in watercolour and ink.

The original painting will be up for silent auction on the night so if you’re nearby make sure to book a table and bid. Proceeds go to IBBY Australia.
