 about 

I'm an Illustrator born and raised in Melbourne, Australia.
Beautiful animals are a main feature in my work which is often created on recycled materials. Other themes I like to capture vary from the light and whimsical, to the dark and melancholy. My favourite medium to work with would have to be fine liners,coloured inks and occasionally I splash some Acrylic paint around too. 
Art has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember and it's my pleasure to share some of it with you here.
