The Girl Who Ran Across Africa
In 2017, a leg injury forced me to give up my day job as a rock-climbing instructor. I decided to commit my time to create an inspiring children's book about my run across Africa. For this book I was the writer, illustrator and publisher. All the artwork was created at home using colour pencils and acrylic paint. As an artist, I love to see my story in the hands of children all over the world.
I'm passionate about the outdoors and nature which is shown through my work. My latest collection is a series of detailed pencil drawings of the beautiful birds seen around New Zealand. I sell the original drawings and limited edition Giclee prints. Having special and unique art on your wall makes a fabulous addition to any home.
