I was born in Sydney and spent my childhood in country New South Wales and the Blue Mountains.

Besides illustrating I play the mandolin and banjo & am somewhat addicted to collecting records and books.

Some picture books I've illustrated include the CBCA Notable 'Anzac Biscuits' by Phil Cummings, the CBCA Shortlisted 'Out' by Angela May George (both published in Australia by Scholastic Press) and 'My Friend Tertius' by Corinne Fenton (published by Allen & Unwin).
