Drawing cartoons and creating characters has been a passion of mine ever since I can remember. As a child, I would draw constantly, getting inspiration from Warner Brothers, Disney, and later The Simpsons, and create my own little world and its inhabitants.

This love of creating characters also lead me to become an actor and later a writer, but my passion for drawing never diminished. I would often create posters for plays and had an interest in turning characters from plays into cartoons.

My medium of choice is coloured pencil. I love the rawness and the texture of it. All my pictures are hand-drawn. The only time I use a computer is to occasionally add writing, to make copies, and to scan my art to this website.

As well as drawing, writing, and acting, I'm also a teacher working in pre-school with children under five, and also a drama teacher for children from age five to twelve.

Thank you for taking the time to look at some of the work I've done. Hopefully we can work together on something cool in the not too distant future.
