Inspired by a love of mid 20th century pop culture, her studio and 1950's home is filled with countless sources of nostalgic inspiration. Vintage graphics and typography, packaging, signs, flea market treasures, girlie magazines, records, books and vintage toys.
Her strong, playful girls can be found on Bare Escentuals, Bloom Cosmetics and a swag of international clients including Coca Cola, Stella Artois, Seafolly Australia and Angostura Bitters. She has been published by Chronicle Books, Penguin, Harper Collins, New York magazine, Vogue Nippon and Hardie Grant amongst others. She illustrated 'The Fashionable Cocktail' book, her work has been included in Luerzer's Archive top 200 Illustrators and she exhibits regularly.
