About me
I am a Digital Artist/ Commercial Illustrator and Designer, working predominantly in mixed media collage, digital manipulation and 3D experimentation. My strengths are in compositon and a combination of electic media forms. The work I create can be abstract, dramatic and “glitchy”, and reflective of this alternate eclectic energy. This Postmodern approach encourages constant exploration and a desire to approach each new project with fresh imagination. Years of experience have been gained working on a wide range of commerical birefs from Advertising to Visual Identities, Installations to Animation and live events. I consider myself a multidisciplinary Creative who can lead and Art Direct a project as well as execute it.
