Illustrator, Concept Artist, 2D Asset Painter
Highly skilled, fast and accurate digital painter. Adapts easily to diverse project types and production pipelines, and picks up new skills quickly. Extremely experienced with Adobe products, particularly Photoshop, with working proficiency in Toon Boom and Painter.
I began freelancing professionally during highschool, and continued throughout college. Upon graduation, I stepped immediately into an internship at a local animation studio, where I spent a year as their primary concept artist, background painter and animation assistant. I found this experience invaluable, as it taught me how to integrate smoothly into a team, and how to participate efficiently as part of a production pipeline. After the term of my internship concluded, I moved west to settle into Vancouver, BC and have been freelancing full-time ever since. I have done book covers, concept art, and editorial illustration, but most of my time continues to be spent contracting in animation and casual games.
