Comic and illustration artist based in Auckland.

Kia Ora!

I am a New Zealand based comic artist, illustrator & designer. I love telling stories and creating beautiful solutions for my clients.

I work in all kinds of fields, but mostly in comics and illustration.

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.

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.

My current comic project The Temptations, is an independent graphic novel I am writing and illustrating. You can read the whole comic so far, right here.

I have been working in comics 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 and have worked with some really great authors.

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.
