I’m a Senior Designer, Art Director and Artist with over 7 years of experience. My expertise lies in beauty, luxury goods, sustainability and wellness & lifestyle industries. I have a keen interest in art, plants, great food and classic design. I’m a confident, enthusiastic, driven, risk-taking and optimistic person who really is dedicated to the cause. I strive to perfect my craft. I’ve worked on a breadth of projects including; creative strategy, art direction/photography, designing websites (UI), digital & printed marketing content, packaging, develop & integrate branding, exhibition spaces and illustrated books. I’ve recently re-platformed and rebranded my folio site so I can sell abstract art I’ve been producing. I take pride in mentoring junior members of a team on good design thinking & practise. Recently I’ve been producing and selling contemporary abstract expressionist paintings. I am currently open to permanent roles, contracted and ADHOC freelance opportunities.
