Kidsit founder, father of three, artist, illustrator, and web designer
Matthew created Kidsit as a place to share his experiences caring for his three children, his tips for teaching kids to draw and inventive play ideas.
He believes all children should have an endless supply of paper, pencils and sticky tape.
Matthew’s artistic talent comes from growing up in a creative family with his father a professional artist and private art teacher.
In 1994 Matthew started his career as a cartoonist publishing his Ogga the Cane Toad comic strip before working as a graphic designer.
In 1997 he built his first website and began the transition to a full-time career in web development.
While building websites professionally for more than 18 years Matthew has maintained a balance between his technical and creative skills by continually drawing.
From 2000 to 2014 Matthew studied life drawing and anatomy at Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney, Australia.
Matthew builds and maintains the Kidsit website on a daily basis and he draws illustrations for every article to help create a unique and memorable design that visitors can enjoy.
