I am an author and illustrator with a passion for inspiring people to care for and connect with themselves through nature. My books and illustrations are soulful, quirky and educational.
I have lived most of my life in Melbourne, a vibrant, creative city but far too cold and wintry. I now live on the warm, sunny north coast of New South Wales.
Apart from writing, I have worked for many years as an environmental educator and manager, including with Aboriginal Ranger groups and Indigenous Protected Areas (IPA's) across Australia. You can visit the Country Needs People website for further details.
These experiences have reinforced my passion for educating people about the many benefits of caring for and building meaningful connections with nature.
When appopriate, I draw on the wisdom of our Aboriginal peoples to help celebrate and learn from these rich cultures. I ensure correct cultural protocols are followed, permissions in place, and donate proceeds of sales to relevant community organisations. Click HERE for further details.
