I am an Award winning Canadian Illustrator & Designer. I have worked seamlessly with clients from all around the world, and love the collaborative process it fosters. An avid hiker and mountaineer, many of my illustrations are influenced by the wildlife and nature I encounter and the beautiful settings that I visit.
I like to develop my images from thumbnail sketches, working out a composition before going to larger scale drawings. When I have something that works, I fine tune things with my client before finishing rough, followed by the coloring phase using a variety of digital paints and brushes to make things pop.
The whimsical humour side of my style is what both children and adults find so thrilling, yet I always provide those vital elements of charming characters, strong visual storytelling and a touch of humor in each project I work on.
