I was born and raised in Australia as the odd child that loved to be creative. I studied illustration in Melbourne, Australia, specializing in painting. But during a trip to Japan my love of paper blossomed. This love developed into my illustration style, which I create by realizing my sketches using cut paper. I call this 'drawing with scissors'.
My work is a mix of abstracted expressive people, bright colors and a strong designed composition.
After a number of years working for magazines in Australia I got a case of wonderlust and moved with my husband to England. We left with four bags - two of which were full of paper! Three years later we moved to San Francisco where we now live. I work from a studio in the Mission District where I can usually be found underneath a flurry of paper.
