HI!
I'm an Australian creative based in the sunny (slightly temperamental) city of Brisbane with a penchant for drawing, handlettering, watercolour, and collecting unique stationery and magazines. I received my Bachelor of Creative Media in 2012 and have since started freelancing as an illustrator, graphic designer and brand developer.

As an illustrator and graphic designer I have naturally started fostering interest in other forms of design, such as handlettered typography, web design and photography.  

My illustration style is mainly created through digital rendering, however I have started working with watercolour again as well as pencil and ink. . 

I have always loved the idea of teaching and passing on any knowledge I can on subjects that I love.
