From illustration and printmaking to graphic design, book design and typography, my creative work takes many forms. My limited edition woodcuts and linocuts have been exhibited and it’s always a delight to see my design and book projects on the shelves, walls and online.
In 2016 I completed two major projects alongside my day job as a Marketing and Communications Coordinator. ‘Will There Be Puffins?’, the first trade picture book I have illustrated, was published by Page Break Ltd in New Zealand, with a second print run in Shetland in 2017. I also successfully project managed, conceptualised, designed and typeset my first solo book design project, ‘Redwood School: Celebrating 50 Years 1966 – 2016’.
After completing a Bachelor of Design (Hons:1st) at Massey University, Wellington in 2012 I have enjoyed a range of jobs including client commissions and self-initiated projects as well as in my full-time roles.
When I am not creating, I am usually gathering inspiration and exploring the world around me. I love to learn about everything! I am also a devoted traveller, bookbinder, ceramics enthusiast, and lace knitter! One day, I dream of having my own studio where I can create books start to finish (paper-making, content, design, binding) and share my skills with others through workshops and classes.
I’m always up for a creative challenge so please get in touch if you would like to work together. You can find my contact information HERE.
