I illustrated my first book, Mending Lucille, in 2009, and from then on I was hooked. In 2010 I quit my day job and began illustrating books full time. Since then, I've illustrated 37 books for major publishers, as well as over 30 educational titles, and been shortlisted for 33 major awards in Australia and New Zealand. My first book as both author and illustrator will be released by HarperCollins in 2018. I feel that I'm incredibly lucky to be able to spend my days drawing strange and wonderful things and calling it “work”. I'm totally ruined for any other career, and will hopefully never have a real job ever again.
