I work both traditionally and digitally to create my whimsical illustrations. My work has a strong sense of lighting, naturalistic colors and dynamic compositions. I'm inspired by wildlife, children and the environments they reside in. I use this inspiration to add a layer of realism to my illustrations.

My illustration journey began at Dawson College where I earned an associates degree in Illustration and Design. Shortly after, I decided to further my education at Sheridan College, where I received my Bachelor degree of Illustration. In between and during my studies I have worked for a diverse range of publishing and editorial clients such as Kayak Children’s magazine, Inhabit Media and currently working with HEMMA Publication and Heinemann Education.
