Busy Head’s creator, Therese uses a distinct style of scientific illustration to capture her love of Australian flora and fauna.


Working from a leafy studio in Bardon, she uses the simplicity of bold colours and clean lines to depict all her favourite creatures. Therese sees illustration as a way to connect with our beautiful natural environment and as an avenue to pursue the curiosity of her little naturalist mind.

I'm currently on a hiatus but am hoping to reopen late 2023. My postcards, tea towels and totes can be found at Museum of Brisbane Shop, Level 3 City Hall Brisbane.

Busy Head would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which we work – the Turrbal and Yuggera  people – and pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
