Coming from a traditional arts background I have a hands on approach to my design and illustration work with an ability to create work both digitally and the old fashioned way. Originally started working as a printmaker and graphic designer but have since moved into becoming an in house illustrator for a digital agency. Across these roles I have worked with such clients as Qantas, Virgin, Unibet, Tabcorp, Vodafone, SCIA, Incu, Swillhouse and AIME. In 2014 my work for The Distillery won the Create Design Award in the Illustration category. In my spare time I like to juggle various creative outlets like comics, animation and badly photoshopped memes. A lifelong movie lover, I spent my youth managing a local video store and feel this strong connection to a good narrative still influences my work. Recently acquiring two small children my next work will most likely be a sistine chapel inspired exploration into the Cars and Planes multiverse.
