These cards illustrate words with silent letters. There are 24 in the set and should be a valuable resource.

Alphabet poster

Posted on Friday 27 June 2014


I have spent some time updating the alphabet cards I create with a work colleague. They are a bit brighter and now have a new font that I made.  The cards can be used separately or as a A3 poster.  I use it with my students all the time and it works well.

New work

Posted on Sunday 24 November 2013

I have a great new project keeping me busy. It is the illustrations for a website to be launched in March 2014. That seems so far away but I guess it will be here before we know it.  2013 has been my most successful illustrating year as I have completed freelance projects for Hinkler Education, Bunnings, Melbourne University, Department of Education and now La Trobe University. I am very thankful.

I have been following the instructions on this tutorial on how to make a chevron pattern. Maybe I will use these in future work.

I have been doing quite a few illustrations that I cannot show. So I decided to make my own illustration in a style similar to one of the projects that I have been working on. I chose the netball theme because as a mother of two daughters sometimes I can find myself watching 4 games a week!!


One of my favorite jobs of late, was a series of black and white line art illustrations. I can only show a snippet.

Illustration update

Posted on Thursday 4 July 2013

Very busy at the moment with illustrations. Unfortunately all are confidential.  I am thinking of updating and changing my website to Squarespace.  A little design that I may go with.
