My Photo
Hello - welcome to my blog about drawing, children's book illustration, poetry, animals and way too many other things. I’m an artist in Tasmania, Australia. I recently illustrated 'The Smallest Carbon Footprint in the Land' by Anne Morgan, and two picture books about traditional life in Sudan (see left). I'm currently illustrating a new picture book as author-illustrator. If you'd like to see more, please use the links to my folio page and my profile at The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, or email me at silvergumstudio@yahoo.com.au. Thank you!

A design for an old fashioned colour plate, for Illustration Friday 'Wings'.


  1. So sweet! Her little arm around his neck is so damn charming! Wonderful depth and perspective. I love it!

  2. Beautiful, serene, dreamy! You feel the see breeze against your cheeks. When I close my eyes I'm five years old and back at beach. Great that your book is published!

  3. Yeah serene is the word! I would to be flying through the sky just like her. It looks so amazingly peaceful. I can hear the wind in my ears.

  4. I would "love" that's supposed to say!!
