HELLO!

I am a coffee fuelled, colour & pattern loving, interior design obsessed illustrator and graphic designer based in Sydney, Australia.

A little bit about me …

I have drawn for as long as I can remember. The first amount of money I ever earned was from selling artworks at Sydney’s famous Bondi Beach markets back in 2001 when I was 17. Fresh out of high school with no job, no qualifications and no money I painted a batch of canvases and sat at the markets week after week. I still remember the feeling I felt when I sold my largest canvas on my first day.

In 2005 I graduated from the University of NSW, College of Fine Arts with a Bachelor's degree in Design majoring in Textile and Graphic Design. Since then I have pursued a design career combining my artistic ability with graphic skills. My unique approach to art and design has led me to work with some amazing and iconic brands such as Mambo, Westpac, Tigerlily, Nakula Coconut Products, Kawaiian Lion & most recently, The Jungalow.

For me, there is nothing better than bringing happiness to people through art — so, after 13 years of working in design, I have decided to go back to my roots and embark on a new journey of drawing and selling my illustrations.

All of my artworks are inspired by nature and are hand drawn with copic markers. I would describe them as colourful, full of rich tones and intricate patterns. Illustrations are Giclee printed on 100% textured cotton rag, 310gsm museum grade fine art paper (OBA - FREE with no optical brighteners). They are printed in Australia using the highest quality materials and are made to order to prevent waste. 

If you have collaboration ideas or just want to say hi please get in touch via my contact page, I would love to hear from you.

Thanks for visiting,
