I trained as a fine artist, with a flair for pattern, collage, colour and humour. I have been fortunate enough to extend my skill in a wide range of products. My work experience includes surface design for both local and international stationery companies, fabric design, tableware and ceramics design, as well as children's book illustrations which is a passion of mine. Together with years of experience in commercial art and in private commissions of charcoal portraiture and drawings and now having moved to computer design, I have found it so exciting with so many new possibilities to combine both worlds. I recently completed a number of book illustrations for Maskew Miller Longman as well as illustrations for the Hartland series . I have three children and love designing in a bright, fun, exciting way that they will relate to. and as long as I am surrounded by the people I love and have the ability to create - I am happy and life is good!
