I’m a digital matte painter, environment artist and motion graphics artist in Vancouver’s VFX industry. In my former career, I was a lead senior designer and independent art director with 30+ years of commercial design and news experience working for a wide variety of clients, brands and broadcasters. I brought a wealth of practical knowledge and an expert skill set to every new project. Past projects include commercials, promotions, documentaries, television variety and news series.
In the last few years I have also returned to illustration work working in traditional pen/watercolour and digital formats. Building up a children’s illustration portfolio and started writing manuscripts. Plus I joined the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).
