I am a 22 y/o student, currently completing my Honours in Natural History Illustration at the University of Newcastle, Australia.

I am inspired by artists like William T. Cooper, Bernard Durin and other Natural History Illustrators, after seeing their work whilst growing up.
I love to try new mediums and techniques as I never know what style I might fall in love with next.

However, at this point in time my most preferred medium is watercolour, and I love illustrating any animal that can be defined as weird or wonderful (or even ugly)!

Meeting other likeminded people who share my love of the natural world and art is the most exciting aspect for me, and is a positive indicator for what great things are to come for me in the near future.
If you have enquiries about my work, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I am currently selling on my Etsy account:
