Picture your ideas

I am an Aussie marine scientist, artist, graphic recorder and children’s author/illustrator who specialises in creative and visual communications to “Picture your ideas“. I combine my experience as a scientist and strategist with my skills as an artist to draw out information, ideas and concepts. I do this by listening to and interpreting information which I then synthesise and simplify using words and pictures to create your visual story.

My creative services include:

  • Graphic Recording & sketchnoting
  • Infographics & illustrations
  • Working with kids (marine art-science)
  • Children’s picture books
  • Creative & visual workshops
  • Science communication workshops
  • Original artworks

When I picture your ideas I help to make the complex simple and the simple compelling and I can picture any idea, topic or concept from and for the following (both live or pre-post event/project):

  • Presentations
  • Publications
  • Proposals
  • Podcasts
  • Papers
  • Plenary’s
  • PhDs
  • Policy & legislation
  • Planning days
  • Preparation (for talks, interviews etc)
  • Websites

You can see more of my visual storytelling and communications using the art of science via the time-lapse video’s below:
