Overview

Freelance illustrator based in London.​I love illustration in all its aspects. I work both with watercolor and ink and digital software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, and Autodesk Sketchbook. I like to combine the two techniques and using my watercolor texture or pattern on my digital illustrations.
My sketchbooks are filled with musicians and scenes from real life I like to capture while I'm out in the city.
