I have always had an interest in art and architecture, so, after many years working as a book designer, I finally decided to put pencil to paper and started illustrating some of my favourite buildings in and around my neighbourhood - the Sydney suburb of Newtown. 

 

I like to bring attention to the ordinary places that we see every day. Buildings we've walked past a thousand times but have never really stopped to look at. Every time I start a new illustration, I always discover something new - a quirky sign or an unusual detail. Without fail, there is always something that I’ve never noticed before - and it’s those little city bits that, to me, are always interesting and always exciting.
