About me

Specialised in Illustration, Comics, Concept/ Character Design, and Storytelling Concept Development. My studies consist of Art and Design in college, and BA VCD Illustration in University. I am very much a self-taught artist, with influences from video games, comics, movies, contemporary fashion, Manga and Anime (Japanese art). I also self-publish art books and small press comics with artist collective, RedSnow Studio, a group of artists who share similar interests and goals, whom I am also a co-founder. When working on projects, I try to get a good sense of what the work is about and what it represents, to allow me to fully immerse myself into the idea, then visualize and manifest the outcome when producing artwork. For me, I try to bring atmosphere to the idea. Collaborating with other creatives, to work on great ideas and producing great work, is always an exciting prospect for me. The sharing of ideas and experiences can greatly improve the outcome of projects.
