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.

More recently - What Happened To The Moa and Where Is It? a wildlife hunt for Kiwi Kids.

For more about me and my life as an illustrator, you can read this interview by the excellent  Sapling.  Also This NZ Life video and article.
