I was commissioned to design both Suzie herself and to help illustrate some of the internal pages with Suzie and her friends

The Millie the Mathematician early reader series is a new take on levelled readers, linking reading development directly to the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics.
I was delighted to work again with Griffith University to help bring the series alive with character illustrations.


By Hayley Apelt

Can only girls love pink, playing with dolls and reading books?


Can only boys be tough, cut their hair short and enjoy getting dirty?


Definitely not!


Boys and Girls promotes equality by teaching children that they should always do whatever brings them enjoyment and happiness – regardless of their gender.

Professor Richard John 
Griffith University
Creator and Author of Suzie the Scientist and Millie the Mathematician Early Reader Series

I've worked with Gemma for a number of years now and I keep going back to her. Not only is she an outstanding illustrator, but she's also a mind reader! With limited guidance from me, she always seems to know exactly what I want or need and is able to produce it with quick turnaround times. 

She created the character Suzie the Scientist and did an outstanding job in illustrating the book series. I then went back to her for the Millie the Mathematician series.

Ultra-professional, ultra-reliable, fantastic imagination, extremely talented illustrator and, most importantly, a wonderful person. Gemma comes with my highest recommendation.
