Service Description

I am a highly motivated, creative, and hardworking individual. I have 10 years of experience in graphic design and illustration. I'm a full time freelance artist (available throughout the day, not just evenings and weekends) with more than 9 years industry experience.

I learned how to draw and paint at the age two, and then studied Graphic Design and Illustration in university, and it has been my passion ever since. I'm living my dream doing what I love!

In the world of graphic design, I love designing brochures, advertising and logos. I pride myself on custom designs, high work ethic and client satisfaction. Each project is approached with enthusiasm, attention to detail, personal attention and fast turnaround. As an illustrator, I work mainly in traditional mediums of acrylics, but am very versatile and can also work in digital. I am flexible and in tune with my client's needs.

For me graphic design is not a job, but a very important part of my life. I absolutely love starting with nothing, and creating beautiful work for each and every one of my clients. I live for the challenge, and seeing the development of the work.
