I'm a freelance designer and illustrator with 18 years experience in commercial design work.
I find the greatest inspiration for my work comes from nature. I love the patterns, symmetry, colour, geometry and texture. I love the detail. I then try to give it a modern twist, taking inspiration from the design world- such as fashion, interiors and graphic design.
This fusion of styles has helped me produce paper art of all shapes and sizes for brands, installations and editorials for magazines. So far this has included tiny intricate flowers and sculptures for luxury jewellery brand Niquesa and a giant bottle of Asahi for the lobby in Asahi HQ in the UK.
My career began as an After Effects animator, followed by live action direction for the music industry and eventually becoming creative director and co-owner of Mr and Mrs Smith; an animation production company in Soho, London.
My experience in animation and graphic design has led to many exciting collaborations over the years; producing logos, branding and animations for some really fun projects.
