Illustration & Design

My Story

I am a multi-faceted illustrator with a range of styles developed over the years. I have a strong foundation in conceptual thinking from years of working in in some of the best advertising agencies as an award-winning Art Director and later Creative Director. This also means that I illustrate with a designer's eye, always keeping the idea front and centre.


After many years in agencies, I gave up the bad pitch food, never ending meetings, late-night shoots and corporate cabs, to follow my first love, illustration.


Since then, I have lived in three countries, had exhibitions in South Africa and Australia, designed costumes for a rock opera, created book covers for best-selling authors. I have now also written and illustrated my own picture books for children.


Currently, I'm based in Auckland, New Zealand, please feel free to contact me to talk about your potential projects. I'm always available to dicuss any ideas you might have - no matter how big or small they might be.
