About me

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland 1991. I've always had a passion for art and design, While growing up it was creating intricate Lego submarines or re-imagining my favourite cartoons. I've built up a broad visual library and dipped my toe in almost every facet of the design world from the traditional media, fashion, digital, 3D Design, 3DSMAX, Zbrush and Game Design, web design and even "Pixel Art." I studied firstly Game Design at university then switching to Illustration to pursue a more graphic design/Illustration career. Specialising in print to garment and primarily working digitally. I'm a commercially aware individual who prefers the "avante garde" attitude towards artistic pursuits.
