More new peek
Designing beautiful children's illustrations and whimsical imagery is my passion. I studied at the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia and received a BA in Animation. My current portfolio is mostly hand illustrated with a small but growing line of digital art work. From classic animation cells and cartooning, I have continued to use my illustrative skills in portraiture, graphic imaging, custom illustrations, decorative wall art and children's art instruction.
My developed style is a melding of a Disney-esque charm to an essence of rustic Holly Hobbie sentimentality. Needless to say, these artists have influenced me in a prominent way as I love the nostalgic sense of innocence, whimsy and sweetness that arise from their work. Childhood is so fleeting and I endeavor to tap into that charming, forgotten realm through my fanciful creations.
A principle of mine is to bring joy and a sense of remembrance to individuals and families, young and old, of the essence and timelessness of youth suggested within my pieces. My aim is to eternalize such memories on my canvas and into those young at heart.
I hope you enjoy my whimsical compositions.
