author and illustrator
Based in Wellington, New Zealand, I live in the misty hills of Karori under Makara Peak. I studied art in Otago and Illustration in Victoria University. Since then I have illustrated and authored many children’s books and journals, including seven non-fiction titles in Potton & Burton’s highly successful Explore and Discover series, as well as Animals of Aotearoa, with author Gillian Candler. I have also written and illustrated New Zealand’s Backyard Beasts, two picture books, Moonman and Watch out for the Weka.
