Additional Information

Travel: Travelling in South East Asia and South America helped me better understand non-westernised visual styles. Seeing Vietnamese cultural heritage in their architecture influenced the final design of the rice package.

Sport: Playing sports, particularly football, is an important part of my life and is something I do regularly. This allows me to clear my mind and to express my competitive nature.

Living Life: Attending gallery exhibitions and music events with friends and family helps me to try new things on a regular basis. This often incorporates itself into my work as I like to use personal experiences in my illustrations.
