Welcome to a selection of commissioned work from my extensive portfolio.

Magazine cover

It is always a joy and a challenge to paint a portrait of someone’s special pet. Watercolour on paper.

One of the delights of collaborative work is combining different skill bases. Here I am with 18 completed templates based on diary entries from Joseph Banks in 1770.  To be developed as commemorative textile panels by the Marlborough Embroiderers Guild for 2020 commemorations of the arrival of HMS Endeavour to Ship Cove, NZ.

Some of the illustrations are shown in the Gallery above.



Logo Design for a plant-based food venue.


Below :  Truly a combination of illustration, design and painting : a street piano commission ! The client wanted to feature a songbird, old hands holding young hands and a koru, to represent their music therapy practice for vulnerable children.

On the front : Big Blue showing Little Red how to express her song, as golden koru swirls music through the air.

On the sides : Peckapecka finds a songseed next to the Songseed tree; Chirrup and Yellowfeather converse under the Soundbud tree while Pinkfinch flies off with a soundbud.
