I am an artist and freelance graphic designer/illustrator based in sunny Queensland, Australia.
Collaboration and connection is incredibly important to me. Growing up in Brisbane city has granted me numerous opportunities to work, exhibit, and connect with creative people in an industry that I love.
I spent a year at QANTM/SAE college studying animation and interactive entertainment before starting a BFA at the Queensland College of Art. During the degree I travelled to the US and Germany to visit art galleries and attend the renowned dOCUMENTA(13) where the need to create and continue to travel converged. In 2013 I moved to Nice, France, and worked as an au pair for just under a year. After returning to Brisbane I completed the remaining two years of study and graduated in 2015.
Since then I've been working with the Starlight Children's Foundation as a workshop facilitator for seriously-ill youth and young adults at leading health facilities in Queensland. Alongside work in-hospital I also lead the design team for the Livewire Zine, an independent publication made especially for teens that is distributed in all major children's hospitals around Australia.
I am also currently undertaking further study in adolescent health and well-being at the University of Melbourne by distance.
