  • Freelance illustrator and designer, erstwhile animator
  • Dublin, IRL

Illustrator and designer, member of Illustrators Ireland, Visual Artists Ireland and A4 Sounds Studios.

I am an illustrator and designer from Dublin. Originally training and working as an animator, since 2012 I have worked as an illustrator and image maker, working predominantly in digital media.

My work incorporates print and poster making, product design, greeting cards and graphic storytelling. I am influenced by popular culture, urban environments and historical reference. I try to incorporate elements of humour in my creative process and enjoy collaborating as well as leading on projects.
