Design and illustration have always been my passion. After graduating from university I worked in a game studio, where I have gained valuable experience working in a team, meeting deadlines and most importantly growing and learning something new every day as an artist.
Since then I have been working as a freelance artist and book illustrator. I have worked for the publishing companies both in New Zealand and Australia creating illustrations for children's books.
In my time as a game artist I’ve worked on concept art, user interface and character design for PC and iPad games. As a freelance artist I’ve illustrated children’s books for Cengage Learning Australia, Global Education Systems Ltd, created an advertisement for Un Deux Trois retail store opening that was featured in magazines like Your Home & Garden, NEXT and Simply You. Other creative works include logo development and business card designs.
I am equally comfortable in working with both traditional painting media and digital as you can see from my portfolio.
