Althea spent her days as a child filling notebooks with hand-written stories, fabricated alphabets, puzzles and doodles of characters. In her teens she discovered anime and manga from which grew an obsession of drawing. Playing some video games like Final Fantasy spawned an interest in CG animation and influenced her decision to study animation after high school.
Graduating from UNSW Art & Design (formerly known as College of Fine Arts, UNSW) she soon found work in art departments for 2D/3D animated shows. Now she draws every day for various creative projects in kids' media focusing on storyboarding for kids film & tv. She also does occasional freelance illustration and comics for children's literature. She particularly loves drawing character poses and expressions.
She lives with her husband in North London who is also a storyboard artist. Both are always on the lookout for new and exciting projects to work on and would be open to relocating together for work opportunities.
