I have been a freelance cartoonist and illustrator for over 25 years. Working with a wide range of organizations, my graphics appearing in many publications, websites and on conference walls.
Originally I studied psychology and worked as a youth worker in Port Adelaide.
Both turned out to be good training for work as a cartoonist.
Although I reckon cartoons/illustrations can tackle just about any issue, over the years I seem to have specialised in creating tailored graphics in the areas of social issues, health, community, education, science, agriculture and the environment.
I use graphics as a means of communicating ideas and information, and using positive depictions and humour to engage the reader.
Most of my work is freelance jobs however I do have a number of more regular cartoon spots. A weekly cartoon appears on the Pro Bono website and I draw a monthly editorial cartoon for the UK based New Internationalist magazine. My cartoon commentary on social and political issues appears in the South Australian produced quarterly journal Australian Options.
