On Line Bookings for workshops here

Hello ! from Melbourne..

Welcome to my website.

I am an author, illustrator, artist, and art educator who lives and works in Melbourne.

“A creative process may begin with a flash of a new idea or with a hunch. It may just start as noodling around with a problem, getting some fresh ideas along the way. It’s a process, not a single event, and genuine creative processes involve critical thinking as well as imaginative insights and fresh ideas.”

Sir Ken Robinson
