I’m always interested in new collaborations, so please get in touch if you’d like to discuss a project idea.


I specialize in creating recognizable depictions of Australian plants, animals and ecosystems. My illustrations have appeared in scientific papers, colouring books, newsletters, magazines, on calico bags, and I also have my own range of greeting cards and Christmas cards. See the Projects page for examples.


I write in a range of styles from scientific, science communication, creative non-fiction and fiction. A list of my publications can be found here.

Nature journaling and Nature studies

I take great pleasure in teaching kids and adults how they can enjoy nature through nature journaling. Download my free ebook Make a Date with Nature for an introduction to nature journaling, and contact me if you’d like to arrange a nature journaling or nature studies activity for your group or organisation.
