Illustrating is like composing a classic Italian dish – it takes a dash of love, a whole lot of lyrical hand gestures, and is best enjoyed with others!

Kristen Willis


I’m Kristen Willis, a Brisbane-based Illustrator, Graphic Designer and Founder of Tondo Creative. My artistic roots stem from the Fine Arts arena, majoring in Printmaking and Drawing (James Cook University 2006). I am creatively driven by my Italian-Australian heritage and appreciate a well-crafted biscotti!

Since 2021 I have been professionally represented by Annabel Barker Agency and a passionate member of SCBWI Queensland and Booklinks/Writelinks. As a 2022 CYA Conference Allstars Aspiring Illustrator finalist, I’m thrilled to creatively contribute to the incredible kidlit community.
