The Beach Birds

Meet and get to know twelve Australian birds found on beaches, estuaries and coastal areas.

Can you name the birds on each page? Read the riddles and lift the flaps to find out!

"I adore this book! It has everything, empathy, information, rhythm and rhyme, playful (and informative) flaps and a dedication to birdlife which I'm sure readers will be sure to imbibe. I certainly did. Thank you so much for the work that you do. We are very pleased and proud to include your book in our collection." Dr Belle Alderman AM, Director, National Centre for Australian Children's Literature, University of Canberra.

About Me

Working from my central Victorian studio I create drypoint etchings inspired by either the native birds on my doorstep or the species I'm researching for the children's bird book I'm working on. I also design a range of products, from linen tea towels and enamel birds pins to hand printed bird ornaments and greeting cards.

I received my order to day, I am so impressed ... I find your art stirs up feelings that are hard to put into words. The wrapping and presentation of your art is a reflection on the care and detail you take with your creations . I have purchased original art work from other artists, but none have shown the care and detail that you always have , for this I Thank You.

I just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying your bird books The Bush Birds and The Beach Birds. You capture not only the physical characteristics of the birds, but also their different personalities and movements. I have always loved lift-the flap books too, so that's an added pleasure :-)

Thanks, too, for the care you take in packaging them and sending them.

I had to check my order from yesterday as today I received a lovely little box. I didnt think online shopping could be so super speedy. Not only swift but great packaging, beautifully wrapped and a couple of little touches. Excellent service, delivery and total package.

Thanks, great job!

I'm so excited, my shipment arrived today! All beautifully presented ...  You are so talented, your work is exquisite. The flaps [in the children's book] are fabulous! Just superb! This will be a well loved book. Thank you very much.

The Books

My children's books introduce readers to birds found in Australia (12 species in each book) engaging them with riddles or rhymes, and illustrations created using traditional printmaking techniques. Each book also has an accompanying game that helps children continue learning through recognition and repetition.
