I support joyful discovery through art and story.

In addition to writing and illustrating for children, I am available to present at schools, early learning centres and libraries. I generally charge at the rates recommended by the Australian Society of Authors for these presentations. Please contact me for a quote.

As a fully qualified and TRBWA-registered teacher, I am able to link arts practice to the Early Years Learning Framework, WA Curriculum Framework, and the Australian Curriculum.

I also have extensive experience providing professional learning to teachers and artists.

In addition to talking about my own books my areas of expertise include:

  • creative writing for all ages;

  • the process of making a picture book;

  • painting, collage and drawing;

  • poetry writing and incorporating language in visual arts;

  • photography and digital image manipulation;

  • using natural and found materials to make art and stories.
