Based in Melbourne, Australia, I completed my Bachelor of fine art specialising in drawing in 2011 at the Victorian college of the arts and am now studying communication design majoring in illustrative media at Swinburne University, Melbourne.
Executed in graphite and coloured pencil, my drawing practice demonstrates my robust skill set for photographic rendering, tapping into the field of realism. Whilst I am a masterful photorealist, I also love creating more individual style illustrations, whether that be vector art, digitally coloured drawings, etc. With a keen interest in both traditional and digital illustration, my work endeavors to merge both in a seamless style, creating a direct relationship between traditional and digital techniques. I have participated in a number of group exhibitions as well as holding solo exhibitions. I have spent the larger part of my life thus far developing my skills and have never lost my love for creativity.
