About / Contact

Hi, I'm an illustrator and graphic designer from Victoria, Australia.

Like many kids I grew up watching Disney cartoons taped from the TV during their 90s rennaissance, and as I got older developed a reputation among friends and family as the quiet one who was a "good drawer".
Despite a short stint studying teaching at uni (both parents primary teachers and owners of many picture books) it was always imagined that I would end up in the creative industries.

These days I work as a graphic designer at a printing company by day, and pursue my passion for illustration by night. In awe of animation but possible with not the patience for producing it frame by frame, I'm still influenced by the styles of the modern studios, chiefly (and maybe unsurprisingly), Pixar.

I like to favour flowing lines and bold colours and ever since I picked up a tablet, embraced the freedom of working digitally. The majority of my recent output has focused on greeting cards, built around cheesy, but not too cheesy, puns. In future I'd like to expand into children's books and character design, but I'm happy to explore any field my creations are welcome.

If you'd like to work on a project together I'd love to hear from you and I can be contacted at: collaredfrog@gmail.com
