Photo on 2014-12-09 at 11.15Who am I? I’m a graphic designer, illustrator and printmaker. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communication from RMIT in 1988 (back when graphics was done on paper).

What do I do? I create graphic design for print, web and signage. I make linocut prints, and other illustrative works on paper. I love making visual things that communicate; I produce brochures, cards, book illustrations, CD covers, logos, signs and limited edition art prints.

It all started on 22 February in 1990 in the kitchen of a Genoa farmhouse in Far East Gippsland, Victoria, Australia.

The Design Desk was an old laminex table pushed against the window with a view of the Genoa River. I was freelancing, producing line illustrations of rainforest flora and fauna with my set of Rotring technical pens.

Today, my studio is an old garage at our Drouin home. My husband had converted this into a space for himself but after a while, when all my drawings and art materials were taking over the house, he gave up the space to me.

    I’ve been hand colouring this linocut in the shop this week.

The print is Campfire in the Dunes,limited edition of 20. Available at the shop next week, also at the Warragul Arts Market Feb 16, in my online shop and from the studio.

    One of the best places to sit for a thoughtful moment. The downhill ski runs at the village form park-like avenues through the snow gums. I prefer this place in summer, although on this day last month the March flies were crazy and we didn’t pause for long before heading back to the lodge.

    My studio is at the end of our driveway. Huge winds blew every leaf in the street down our driveway and it all ended up in front of my studio. I took this photo before sweeping it all up. The huge foreground sculpture is a sphere I made from the grape vines that grow along the fence of the driveway.
