About me
First and foremost, I love art. I love creating it, viewing it, teaching it and even learning it. For me art is not just something I do, it's part of my DNA. As a freelance artist I love taking a client's ideas and bringing them to life. Whether through children's book illustration, fine art and portraits, concept art or game design, I want to engage with my audience, to captivate them or even inspire. As you can see by my portfolio, I work in a variety of styles and mediums so why not contact me for a chat! All the best.
