Brett's parents would say that he had an overactive imagination as a child, and that's probably putting it mildly. He LOVED drawing more than anything and this is how he managed his creative outbursts. His father happened to be a printer by trade and would regularly bring home reams of off-cut paper for Brett to draw on. Brett later channeled his talents into studying Graphic Design and has been working in this profession for the last 25 years. Even though a lot of the work Brett does now is computer based design, project and brand management he enthusiastically takes on any work where illustration is required. Working in a career where Brett uses his imagination on a daily basis is a realisation of all his dreams.

"A real triumph of a kids book and even has the emotional element for adults to remember the childhood memories of imagination." Paul Harris
