Welcome to my creative wonderland.

Bird I am a visual storyteller who now lives in Rotorua, New Zealand. I produce illustrations with pen and ink, and watercolour, and create narrative-rich oil paintings.

My art is often described as whimsical and wistful, mischievous and magical. Embracing the circus that is life, I shine a light on our messy mistakes and imperfections, with the belief that our vulnerabilities can become our super-powers, and that at the heart of everything, is love.


“We who make stories know that we tell lies for a living. But they are good lies that say true things, and we owe it to our readers to build them as best we can. Because somewhere out there is someone who needs that story.”


Neil Gaiman – The Graveyard Book
