Summary

I'm a concept artist, illustrator and digital matte painter with experience working in Animation, Illustration and the Themed Attraction Industry. I specialise mostly in environmental concept art & design, backgrounds and layouts for animation, and character design. I love to create worlds and characters full of life, personality and charm! I'm always striving to grow as an artist and I'm eager to learn new things. If you like my work, let's talk! Feel free to email me and tell me a little about you, your project, and how I might be able to help.
