Bio

With a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of Canterbury, NZ, I've worked in the creative industry for about 8 years in Osaka, London, and Sydney.

 

Over the last few years I've specialised in campaign image design, retouching and asset production, as well as campaign delivery management.

 

As both an Art Director and Lead Creative Retoucher, I've been involved in many varied projects, working with incredible photographers, design agencies and clients.

 

Retouching, illustration and packaging design and production are my favoured fields of work, but I have a hugely varied skill-set and will confidently take on any role.

 

I hope you enjoy browsing my portfolio, and please don't hesitate to get in contact if you have any questions.
