I finally sorted through our Tasmania photos yesterday!  It seems to be the most diverse of the Australian states in terms of landscapes and climates.  One minute we were collecting shells on the beach, and the next minute, up in the mountains in the snow!

Savannah Map

I have a new wedding map to share: Savannah has heaps of beautiful and quirky "low country" imagery to draw from, so I was excited to paint this one.  I tried a slightly different style by taking out most of the line work I usually rely on and keeping it light and airy...

Coastal Walk

And speaking of walks, Coogee to Bondi is still fun even in winter.  Can you imagine living next to the water and surfing after work here every day?


I've been in Sydney how many years now, and I still love walking in and around the city.  There's always some new street lane I haven't noticed before, a cafe I haven't tried (and we're definitely foodies here!), or the light just hits the harbour a different way-- makes for good exploring :)

Vivid Festival 2014

Sorry I haven't been so good about blogging lately (I try not to post custom work for private clients too often for their privacy.)  In the meantime though, I've shared some photos from this year's VIVID festival, with digital media light shows, night markets, and interactive installations all around the city.  Love it!

Walk the Harbour Bridge

It's getting dark earlier as days switch between warm and cool well into our Southern Hemisphere autumn. It's perfect walking weather, so I set out along the water from the north heading south over the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Painting houses is one of the most intimate types of illustration for me.  It's an honour every time I'm asked to paint one.  I find that the smallest details give the best glimpses into the lives they hold, and are what makes someone's home special to them.  

Below are close-ups from some of my favourite recent house portrait commissions!
