I am a freelance illustrator and designer based in Dunedin, NZ. Working from my home studio, I design and illustrate books and stationery whilst working on exhibitions and art projects.
I love to combine traditional art making methods such as drawing, painting and sculpting with digital mediums such as animation, photography and design.
After studying a Bachelor of Graphic Design, Majoring in Illustration and Masters in Arts Management I embarked on a 11 year creative journey of telling others stories before starting my fulltime freelance business in 2015.
From being a solo graphic designer for a media and publishing house, in the heart of the South Pacific, Tonga to managing a gallery and studio for artists with intellectual disabilities in NZ, and working as a Communications and Design Coordinator for a community arts organisation in Western Australia.
These experiences built my passion for the power of books, visual storytelling, art and design to build empathy, explore ideas and build social conscience.
For illustration and design projects, commissions or collaborations please get in touch.
