About

about-image-black-white.jpg

Hello! I'm a freelance 2D concept artist specialising in background, environment paintings and illustration. I love painting both digitally and traditionally in oils - preferably with a cup of tea at hand. I'm always looking to improve my skills and really enjoy working en plein air - trying to capture the colour and light of a landscape and bring it to life on the page.

Currently available for freelance work & open for commissions. For job enquiries please get in touch via email:
