MY BACKGROUND AND APPROACH

I've been working in the creative industry in various forms for over 15 years, since graduating with a Visual Communications degree from The National College of Art and Design, Dublin in 2006. Having started my career as a graphic designer, I have in recent years begun to change my focus to concentrate on my real passions - illustration, drawing, painting and printing. From this I've developed an illustration style that is a versatile mixture of traditional and digital media, usually combining detailed line with bold colour palettes or rich textures. People, characters and pop culture are of particular interest to me but I'm comfortable working across a wide range of different subjects.

A full-time, professional illustrator since 2015, my body of work spans a variety of media, including publishing, advertising, packaging, animation, editorial and more. 

Thanks for visiting!
