About me & my work:

Born drawing and trained in design, I gained some work and life experience in Paris before returning to fill small square spaces with pictures and words in the newspaper since 1989. Also some bigger spaces, including children's books, editorial cartoons, theatre sets and even the Sydney Opera House concert hall. My combined cartooning and francophony has led me to be part of Kofi Annan and Jean Plantu's Cartooning for Peace, an international network of committed press cartoonists, who fight with humour for the respect of cultures and freedoms. My cartoons have won two Walkley Awards for Journalism, four Stanley Awards and a National Museum of Australia Award for Political Cartooning.
