An Illustrator by practice, a dreamer of the imagined at my core.
My first attempt at drawing something seriously for the first time was at the age of seven. I remember sitting by my bedroom window pencil and lined paper in hand as I tried my hardest to draw the forest across the street. I immediately recall the great feeling of disappointment at what I had created, not quite able to capture the beautiful scenery I had seen. I've been improving my drawing skills ever since. Maybe that's why I have such an affinity for nature today. When I was nineteen I happened to be lucky enough to find Will Terry's youtube channel about all things children's books and the Oatley Academy's podcast, the idea that you really can make a living from your passion while telling meaningful stories finally began to sink in.
I push myself in art because its what I love to do, and I hope that I can invoke that same feeling onto others through both my work and characters.
