Painting, Illustration, Storyboard creator based in Auckland.

Painting speaks to the viewer in a unique way. Discovering an idea, developing a thesis, planning a working strategy, research and mapping materials and dimensions are all essential to developing something new. Once the painting is planned I use a combination of digital and traditional methods to implement the design, and create a painting that speaks to the viewer.

Comics

I have been working in comics creation for a while, and it truly is one of the best experiences. I have had the privilege to be published in Funtime Comics, Boo! A Spooky Anthology for kids and on Tapas.io and have worked with some really great authors.

Illustration is meant to communicate an idea, a feeling, or fulfil a brief. I love the process of developing a illustration that works and can speak to the viewer over time, as well as please my clients. I experiment with a variety of styles, always harking back to a mixed media approach of both traditional and digital techniques. My illustrations are usually fun and quirky, and I have worked on a variety of books and publications.

Clear communication is at the heart of visual storytelling, and I have had the privilege to work on quite a few storyboards, for advertising and short film.
