I am a freelance illustrator/graphic designer living in Calgary, Alberta. I studied Visual Communications Design at Alberta University of the Arts from 2016 to 2020 and English literature at the University of Calgary from 2011 to 2016.
Growing up hearing impaired, I found that effective visual communication was crucial to my learning and development. This experience has inspired me to apply my passion for art and design towards helping others communicate their messages more clearly and accessibly.
My "style" is that I work in many different styles, depending on the situation i'm in, or the visual problem I am solving. For me, the best part about illustration and design is getting to explore different ways of seeing, mark making, and communicating visually and emotionally. I like to combine traditional and digital media for a collage effect of old and new in my work, and love experimenting with texture.
Some of my biggest influences include Sargent, William Stout, Frank Frazetta, Heinrich Kley, George Bridgman, Peter Han, Steve Huston , Lauren Tamaki, Marshall Vandruff, and Saul Bass.
