My Bio
I am a cartoonist, digital artist and professional graphic designer who’s been drawing cartoons and comics since she was 12 years old. That was when I was doodling dragons in the margins of my math books.

I have spent years studying sequential art and visual storytelling as well as applying graphic design principles to create a pleasing experience for others.

My qualifications include a bachelor of animation and a postgraduate in digital design. Currently I volunteer my services at my local charity, creating a monthly workplace health and safety cartoon to be used in their email newsletter.

I have always been passionate about visual narrative and the potential it has to change a life. It is my goal to create my own visual stories through the comic medium and send them out into the world.

I am always experimenting with the Clip Studio Paint software to find new techniques, share what I’ve learned and make things easier for up-and-coming creatives in the field. I am constantly looking to improve my art skills and help others do the same.

I'm most nostalgic for...getting up at 6:30 on a Saturday morning to watch Powerpuff Girls, Johnny Bravo, and Dexter's Laboratory on TV. Yes, I'm doing this just for a badge.

I have been incredibly fortunate with COVID-19 and the lockdown in my area. It's been emotionally taxing, but I could have been much worse off. The most inconvenient thing to happen to me during this time is every public place closing and the supermarkets temporarily suspending online grocery shopping (which was through March and April); and I guess huge delays in package deliveries, since everyone's buying their stuff online now. While I naturally spend a lot of time at home, mostly cleaning, I haven't been able to go out and walk around even once a week because of this pandemic. A few months of that and I start to wonder if I'm still sane. Luckily, because Australia has acted quickly on this, the restrictions are now slowly easing. Our state borders opened and then closed again when a second wave started. Victoria has had trouble keeping infections down and has gone back into a stage 3 lockdown because some people there just wouldn't self-quarantine when they were

Sorry I've been gone so long. I haven't been posting anything in ages, but I have been checking up on my messages here, so nothing has gone unread. While I am sad to see the old DA interface go, I am slowly getting used to Eclipse. I see now that the website interface did need an overhaul and some of these new features make sense. The new chat feature might be very convenient. And I am extra glad that the paginated scrolling is now working, as well as a search function. I was getting worried about forced endless scrolling. What I'm really afraid of is DeviantArt becoming like Twitter or YouTube or Pinterest, where you get addicted to browsing because of constant recommendations and endless scrolling. That's partly why I moved away from those networks. With the way they are designed, I felt like part of my brain was shut off whenever I visited them. Without the DF YouTube add-on for Firefox, it's like I lose control of my browsing on YouTube and waste so much time and energy. Really

Double post sorry!
I was wondering if you do requests
Thank you for your interest and for checking with me first.

Unfortunately I do not take requests at this time. I'm unsure about whether I will.
