About me

I enjoy applying sustainability principles to my creative process, bringing together concepts, objects and ideas that may be taken for granted, invisible or overlooked by everyone. I give them a new life through new combinations – unearthing a new perspective that was there all along. To do this I combine two skills: graphic design and fine art. Graphic design allows me to use visual language to communicate complex ideas and stories, but deliver them as a simple clear message, where nothing is left to be taken away. My fine art gives me the ability to use abstraction and imagination to make people think, and inspire them. Creating a unique connection, one that is so good they want to show their friends. I want to use those skills to help brands and companies stand for something meaningful and purposeful. It’s never simple, but it motivates me to always push forward. It’s a messy and iterative process, but when you care and get good, it takes you to a place you never been before.
