I'm a Canadian illustrator based in Vienna, Austria. I have the pleasure of working with clients around the world in publishing, editorial, and advertising. I grew up in Canada and studied Fine Arts at NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
In addition to my freelance work, I teach drawing at Illuskills and work with the international illustration community through Illustria and the European Illustrators Forum.
My work has been exhibited in Europe, North America, Australia and China. My work has been featured on websites like Juxtapoz, Comics Alliance, and Squidface & The Meddler; as well as being published in books by Taschen and Die Gestalten; and the Eisner-award winning Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream. I have been honored with medals from Society Of Illustrators New York, 3x3, Society Of Illustrators LA, Illustrative and Autori Di Immagini.
This website presents an in-depth selection of my best work. To watch my work as it develops, follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Béhance.
