Finally it is completed! Five years is quite a stretch to illustrate a book but here it is. As a sneak preview of what is to come, here are a couple of finished panels.  Let’s hope it’s out soon.

The Schermbrucker archive

An exciting development for our family.  Dr Alan Kirkaldy from the history department of Rhodes has shown interest in writing up the story of Ivan Schermbrucker, my late father-in-law. This has spurred us to put a huge range of materials that we have in our possession (letters, craft, photographs, documents etc.) into some kind of order and capture it digitally. If you are interested in this story, see my novel Lucky Fish! which is a fictionalised version of my husband’s experiences when his parents went to jail in the 60’s

Pong

February 2014

A small picture book for the under 6s, this lyrical text is based on the latest research that proves the dung beetles – many varieties of which, by the way, have two pairs of eyes – navigate at night using the stars and especially the Milky Way. I illustrated it using pebbles, sand, stones, grass and found objects.
