I was born in Mparntwe – Alice Springs. My family is from the Pitjantjatjara Lands in Central Australia. I started to draw a lot when I was eight years of age. My love of Anime and Shōnen Manga, fantasy, comic books and movies influence how I write and draw. My family and friends support me to follow my dream, which is to create graphic novels and draw ‘amazing’ illustrations.
My family is from Alice Springs – Mparntwe. I now live in Adelaide with my father and younger siblings. I love to write stories about dark fantasy/dystopian fiction and apocalyptic worlds. I have always loved reading and writing as it’s a good way to get my head off things and just relax. My family are from Arrernte and Jingili Lands in the Northern Territory.
On my dad's side I am from the Arrernte and Anmatyerre Lands of central Australia. My mum was born in Scotland.
I wrote the first volume in my graphic novel series, Mixed Feelings to show the diversity of stories that make up my hometown, Alice Springs - Mparntwe.
Writing graphic novels allows me to create different worlds through my imagination. I am passionate about inspiring people to tell their stories.
