Children's books—illustration portfolio
I completed a course in illustrating children's books by Franki Sparke, at the ANU School of Art, and have since written several picturebooks. This page includes illustrations for books I have written and samples of my illustration styles, including watercolour, collage, pastel and mixed media.
Illustrations for books by Maren Child
Nick is having a pirate party, on a real boat. Sam, a toy bunny, is one of his presents. While the guests are playing at swordfighting, Sam falls overboard and drifts to the shore, where he meets Molly.
A little girl finds him and wants to take him home, but her father says No.
Mouse and Egg
Egg, the hero of this story, runs away from Farmer Brown and meets Mouse in the forest.
Daphne and Redthorn
Daphne and Redthorn, two baby yaks, grow up in the Himalayas. Redthorn is banished from the herd when he accidentally hurts the son of their owner, and Daphne goes to find him.
