Over the month of October, my three year old and I sketched Australian birds in ink… Most of the time I had a baby strapped to me so I was pretty proud to make the finish line!
News just in! The work created for Jolla Baby’s Memoir Cards have earned a highly commended in the Illustrator Australia Awards – so happy to be among the talent there.
I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing exhibition on in just under two weeks in Melbourne, with pairings of artists and writers to create the work. Organised by Shannyn Higgins (her work can be seen here) it’s going to be a pretty spectacular show methinks! Project website here including portraits Shannyn took of all the participants, including me!
