Graphic Designer / Digital Illustrator
If you seek whimsy, nostalgia, maybe a little bit of sass, and a whole lot of adventure, you'll find it here; In my portfolio of work, in the pieces I design and sell, and in my personality - if I'm not too shy to show you, that is.
Having grown up on the West Coast of British Columbia, I am influenced by the nature that surrounds me and strive to tell a story while inspiring people and making them smile along the way.
My work is a reflection of that and is also reflective of the life I want to live; Happy, colourful, adventurous.
I studied art and design at UFV, BCIT, and Emily Carr over a period of 6 years and landed full time work in the industry shortly after.
Since 2006, I have been designing and illustrating for mostly in-house positions. Over the last couple of years, I have been dedicating evenings and weekends to personal projects. This has allowed me to explore new ideas as well as improve and refine my processes, while making the final pieces available for sale online. This has led to many small successes over the years like being selected for small group art shows and online curated art collections. Since January of 2017, I've been selling items like patches, stickers, and buttons from my Etsy shop and you can currently find my items in small boutiques in the USA and Canada.
