Throughout my career I have been fortunate to have worked on some fabulous projects for national and international clients and their brands.

After a decade of employment at both Global Culture and Canterbury International my forte became graphic design for the apparel industry. In more recent years I have designed fabric and textile prints and I particularly enjoy the combination of the illustrative and Photoshop work this requires. I have oodles of technical knowledge when designing and preparing artwork for screenprinting.

Brochures, flyers and the like - ‘typical graphic design work’ - are always a constant. I also seem to be visually enhancing my local community by one logo at a time.

I work from a home office with a dog who whines when she believes its time to get out for a neighbourhood sniff. I am a busy mum to two boys, have fostered 115 kittens, am a well-practised nag to my husband, and almost daily I can be found in a frenzied state trying to maintain orderliness and get to things on time. I believe they call it ‘life balance’.

Surprisingly to many, I once won a champion-of-champions trophy in pool. I always return my shopping trolley, know where to use the words ‘you’re’ and ‘your’ correctly, and most nights I get by with a buttery chardonnay.
