I am a freelance illustrator from Melbourne, Australia. I love making illustrations that evoke a sense of intrigue; images that make you linger, hungry to know the story behind them. My work is often inspired by the past; from myths and fairy tales to gothic novels, these stories resonate with me because they bring a little bit of magic and wonder to the present day.

I received a degree in Communication Design from RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, and then completed my MFA in Illustration as Visual Essay at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. When I’m not working, I can be found poring over old books trying to find stories to illustrate, or working on eccentric craft projects.
