Trying to emulate Vincent Van Gogh, he twice dropped out of art school, eventually finding a job that suited him as a children's library assistant. After three years hanging out in the mind of a child, he moved into the serious world of the Walt Disney Sydney studios, before having his first book published - a how to draw cartoon animals' book. His first picture book, THE MAN WHO LOVED BOXES, was the winner of the Australian Family Therapists' Award and was selected for Pick of the List (US).
