Oil Painter, Illustrator and Cartoonist. I think of my self as a Modern Impressionist Artist.
I started my journey into the arts when I was very young, we’re talking around three or four when I took a vivid marker to the back of my mother’s curtains.
At High School I discovered my love for pencil and ink, where James Sutherland a wonder mad Scotsman mentored me. Through him I discover a love for the craft of Illustration and Painting.
Therefore in 2009 I studied in a Painting & Sculpture degree at Wintec (Waikato Institute of Technology). I majored in Painting Sculpture with a minor in Graphic Design, and of course Illustration. As of 2012 I graduated with my Bachelor of Media Arts.
Form April of 2011 to May 2012 I have been a Trainee Watchmaker, under the watchful eye of Geoffrey Bryant.
To this day I am a keen Graphic Artist and Illustrator, I have appeared in Art Auctions, have had published photographs and currently participate as a Cartoonist on a community website, Number 8 Network, drawing Osborne the Pukeko.
