I have loved illustration ever since I was a kid. I grew up reading Footrot Flats, Mr. Men, and Graeme Base books, like Animalia and the Eleventh Hour, which fueled my imagination. I remember having a little desk by the side of the lounge room, were I would sit and draw for hours whilst my family bustled around me. If you ever came to my house you were bound to leave with a crummy drawing of your house or weird drawing of yourself with sausage arms. Even my dog had a collection of my drawings pinned up in her kennel. As I went through high school my love for illustration faded and the social scene took my interest. But when I was in year 11 studio arts. I created a book called the Book of Beards. My interest in illustration erupted, and suddenly I was drawing, sewing and painting images of any and every bearded man I saw. As I entered year 12 I called upon the help of my Visual Communication teacher and my brother Matthew, who helped me with my skills in Illustrator and Photoshop. Since then, I have developed my skills throughout University and accomplished some works I never thought could be possible. The collections of work displayed are amongst my favorites out of all my work to date.
