Thank you for visiting my online folio. Here you will find examples of my illustration, design, web design and photography work. I am available to work on a variety of projects from computer-based to traditonal painting and sculpture. Although my background is in design and illustration, I have a degree from the University of Otago in Art History and Film Studies. I have also been employed by several Museums working in a variety of positions from retail to installation and exhibit design.
As an illustrator, I have developed a unique style merging tactile methods with digital rendering. To create my Dream Drawings I hand draw the image and shade it accordingly. I then create various water color, tea/ink stained paper backgrounds and blend them together in Adobe Photoshop resulting in a unique piece of digital artwork unlike any other artists. For non-digital work I prefer the water color medium because of its subtle nature and I also enjoy acrylic painting. I have a diploma in illustration from the National School of Business Studies in Christchurch New Zealand and I have continued to develop my skills over the past ten years.
As a designer, I have over ten years of freelance experience working for various non-profits and small businesses. I have a dimploma in Computer-Aided Graphic Design from the National School of Design and Technology in New Zealand. As well as traditional methods I currently use Adobe programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator for the bulk of my work.
As a web designer, I have created three websites (including this one) and worked on several e-commerce sites updating content and revising copy for SEO. I was also the Web Coordinator at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego managing the online store. I am familiar with HTML, CSS and I use Adobe Dreamweaver for the bulk of my web work.
As a photographer, I have chosen to seek out and photograph broken down old cars and trucks as my subject matter. There is something appealing to me about nature reclaiming machines and I am still in the process of exploring this. I am a self-taught photographer but I plan to take some courses in the near future.
