Hello, I’m Bridget, the illustrator and creator behind Stray Leaves.
Creating art makes me a better person. I adore making fun, bright and happy illustrations that bring people joy! Nothing makes me happier than seeing people smile from my work.
The name Stray Leaves originates from my family home in Bundanoon NSW. With a large number of trees in the backyard, and a short walk to the national park, my childhood was full of outdoor adventures and nature appreciation. This is a huge inspiration for my work and sparked my love for native Australian flora and fauna.
Now based in the Central coast NSW, I am constantly inspired by the beautiful bushland and ocean that surrounds me.
From this love sparked my passion for the environment and conservation of this beautiful world. I believe we can all do our part and our art doesn’t have to cost the earth. That’s why I choose to use recycled and responsibly sourced materials in all my work.
When I’m not illustrating stationery and giftware, I am illustrating children’s books. Everything and everyone has a beautiful story that deserves to be told and I love being able to help bring them into the world.

Bridget has worked for us on a couple of children’s picture book projects. She is an extremely talented young lady who is an absolute pleasure to work with. Bridget presents her work in a professional manner and communicates and gives regular updates on the project she is working on. Her illustrations are beautiful, bright and colourful. She has an excellent eye for character design and detail which is portrayed in the final result. I would highly recommend Bridget and enjoy working with her!
