Sock design -- tick. Editorial illustration -- tick. CD cover art -- tick. I can't cross this off my bucket list though, because the idea that I would ever have an illustration on the front cover of a magazine was too incredible. But -- ta da! -- here she is. I can hardly believe it. (I plan on roaming newsagents around the country for the next two months, just to make sure that I am not dreaming.)
I am hugely grateful to Sophie Kalagas and the team at Frankie, but especially to Lucy Feagins from The Design Files, who commissioned this little lady in the first place (for Open House 2013).
This blog is both a record of my work and an attempt to contribute to the vast inspiration that thousands of other creative people have given me via the internet.
I worked for many years in the fashion industry, designing prints, textiles and developing products for children. I now work as a freelance illustrator and make a variety of work under my own name. Some of the things that I make can be found in my etsy shop and in galleries and stores around Australia.
