I studied art at Victoria University, and have since 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, and two picture books, Moonman and Watch out for the Weka.
I am inspired by strange creatures, whether real or fanciful. This is a preoccupation that has stayed with me, and has endless potential.
