About me

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart,…you’ll know when you find it.” Steve Jobs

meI grew up in Adelaide and my family moved to Sydney when I was 13yo. I always enjoyed drawing and had a passion to move into graphic design with an emphasis on Illustration. When I left school, I got an apprenticeship in Pre-Press which set me up in good stead for a creative career down the track. I worked for quite a few printing houses until I eventually found work as a Graphic Designer.

A.K. (After Kids) I continued to freelance and work on my own projects. My focus shifted career wise and I studied my way over to the humanities sector. I gained my cert 4 in Nursing and Mental Health, and completed 2 Diplomas, one in Community Services and the other in Counselling. I worked for about 8 years across Nursing, Mental Health and Case Management in Fostercare.

Since my rather spectacular health breakdown, back in April 2016, I am now focused on drawing and writing when I feel up to it. I’ve been doing a lot of comics on the iPad Pro using amazing free software, ‘Autodesk Sketchbook’ and another great software program called Procreate.

My home is my sanctuary from the world, and my partner, family and pets are a daily source of joy and comfort to me. I am blessed and highly favoured!!!
