Hello!

I am a freelance illustrator living in Peterborough, Canada and former graduate of OCAD University. Besides my love for creating pictures, I relish in hunting for antiques, playing soccer and comforted by a well made cup of tea; strong with just a dollop of milk, no sugar!

Previous clients include Mary Young, Collective Arts Brewing, L'Express, CareWear, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Hostel Oasis, Makers Festival, Street Art Toronto, and The Newspaper
