I am an adaptable illustrator who can draw in many different styles and mediums. I mostly use a Wacom Tablet, Uni-pens, pro-markers and pencil to create eye-catching, modern and relevant work. I am also trained in Photoshop, Illustrator, Manga Studio 5 and Indesign. I enjoy working in colour and black & white.

Over the last few years, I have seen a change in the art industry and from working with various animation studios and graphic designers I have created my own unique style of juxtaposing two worlds together in a modern and interesting way.

This change has made me explore new styles of illustration and adjust to the brief from the client meaning my range of work varies from corporal to cartoon to commercial illustrations, making me a great asset to any team.

In the past employees have been impressed with my work ethic and speed at which I can draw as well as my technical knowledge. I have also been praised for my imagination and the support I offer to fulfil the brief but also go beyond it. This is demonstrated in my commercial illustrations at Star City and the storyboards I have created with Chris Randall at Second Home Animation Studio.
I am an enthusiastic graduate illustrator who is inspired by many different art styles and feel I can bring this energy, motivation and credible skills to any creative company.
