I love the Australian bush. I also love our Botanic Gardens especially the one in Canberra plus the cafĂ© there has great coffee and cake! For those people contemplating a trip to Oz make sure you get to see our wonderful gardens – that is when travel is permitted.

Take care of yourself and others.

New Picture Book in the works

My drawing (for my next children’s book) with Digital artwork by Sarena Flanigan (https://sfflanigan.com/?fbclid=IwAR2m2E5ljeX0AEPvlVqrYLJ5bZ7YmrnE-XhMHard6bETNMe8cNP-TnNP6Sc)

To anyone who is interested in picture books – like agents – or anyone who wants to give feedback. It’s a long road for a writer. Sometimes you get lucky, other times it becomes a hard slog to keep going. I’m upping the ante so to speak and finally sharing some of my artwork – I am being brave!

Original water colour ideas for the book

A few odd drawings of first draft of story

Lunch time at work and no drawing pad so had to use my diary!

Not a great photo but inspiration was there!

Another lunch time at work – the diary comes in handy some days!

Those shadows will not disappear

My heart is bursting!

I have been so fortunate, not only with having a dream come true but to have the support and friendship of awesome people such as Trideep ( T ) and George at Cinque Lire at Monash University.

Friendship is possibly the greatest thing on earth!
