Collaborating with Travis Walton Architecture for Factory X, I was privileged to have the freedom to contribute to their latest interior, creating artwork for a space which is captivating, luxurious and aspirational.
Hand painting each of the components I later finished the murals digitally, creating wallpaper and tiling on a grand scale. The result is a space that heralds 1950's Parisian glamour, enveloping the customer in an enchanting and timeless bouquet of romanticism.

Riding the coat tails of the vintage poster popularity, I drew upon my love for the work of French graphic artist Bernard Villemot to inspire a horoscope series.

Young adult author Catherine Mayo has written about Friendship vs Treachery set a decade before the Trojan War. 'The Bow' is the follow up to her first novel 'Murder at Mykenai', published in June 2013.
I had the privilege to illustrate both covers and also designed her website, book marks and bookplates to compliment the look and feel of the cover artwork.

Maroondah Art Trail is an exciting, new project bringing together the hospitality industry and artists, making art accessible to all.
An initiative of Urban Life Community in conjunction with Maroondah City Council, it aims to support and encourage local emerging and professional artists through the creation of space within local cafes and restaurants.
I'm honored to be exhibiting 12 framed prints, all for sale, in The Village Foodstore, Heathmont. With my art gracing their walls for 3 months, I hope you'll head down to enjoy a coffee or bite to eat in support of the initiative.

Offering both pixel and paint, I have a client centric approach to illustration across a variety of genres, from children and animals to flora and fashion. My strength lies in a good understanding and artistic ability of proportion, realism, the form and movement of the human body and the clothes that drape around it. I love satisfying clients who are willing to see beyond the pages of my portfolio and trust themselves to push my boundaries to deliver artwork outside of what they have seen me achieve previously. With 18 years of commercial work in advertising, design, editorial, publishing and packaging I'd love to chat to you about how I can best help solve your communication needs through art.
With a BA in Fashion Design from RMIT I have worked locally in product development and textile design. Armed with your seasonal direction and determined colour palette, I create yardage, engineered and placement prints, for both screen and digital print processes under your direction. If you require technical sketches, range boarding, lookbooks or key look illustrations to help sell your seasonal ranges I can help with these too. Ask me also about stock service prints that I have in work for you to purchase momentarily.
I'm not formally trained as a graphic designer, however when applying for University I was fortunate to have a choice between Graphic and Fashion Design. I chose the latter, but I'm often told there is a graphic sensibility to my work. I have clarity for composition, proportion, balance and colour. And so my clients trust me not just with illustration but to use my aesthetic eye and creative approach to problem solving, to design company logos, environmental graphics, event material and stationary.
This is an area of great interest to me for future pursuits and expansion. I recently completed my commission of wallpaper and porcelain tiling design for the Alannah Hill Emporium in Lonsdale St, Melbourne, opening April 2014 which was fabulous to work on. Having already garnered private commissions for soft furnishings, and wall art which I'm still interested in, the commercial area offers exciting opportunity for future growth. I have particular interest in custom resin and porcelain tiling and wallpapers of either repeat pattern or mural in design for high impact in residential, commercial and retail spaces. Let's collaborate!
