Creating design projects, commissioned paintings and websites
high up amongst the clouds in the tiny village of
Mount Victoria in the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains.

Since 1993, I have worked as in various roles in graphic design all over Australia in:

  • advertising
  • direct marketing
  • boutique and large-scale design houses
  • government
  • fashion
  • retail
  • publishing
  • music industry
  • interpretation

I have an extensive design portfolio working in the industry over the past 20+ years from Sydney to the Northern Territory to Queensland. Employment has varied from the major corporation Reader’s Digest (Sydney) through to boutique agencies like See-Saw Illustration & Design (Brisbane) and Dunnart Advertising (Alice Springs), bringing a number of high-end projects to fruition on budget and on time.

In 2006, I decided to go solo when I moved to the Blue Mountains in the quaint village of Mount Victoria – lucky to be able to work on beautiful projects with fantastic clients. If I’m not embedded in a client’s design project, I’m working on my range for Mount Vic and Me, gardening with the kids or out with the chooks. Hubby Geoff has his tiling business here too.
