I am an illustrator and designer with over a decade of experience creating high-quality visual content for both print and digital platforms. 

With a background in Human Kinetics and a Masters of Science in Biomedical Communications, I specialize in detailed Anatomy & Physiology illustrations for educational publishing. I love continuing to learn about the human body and the world that we live in. I also illustrate biology, chemistry, and environmental science content. From concept to research to sketch to final rendering techniques, I create visual tools for teaching and learning.

Beyond the book, I have developed skills in interactive media design, scientific scriptwriting, storyboarding, and 2D animation.

Although much of my experience centres around medical illustration, I also enjoy design, lettering, and creating art in both digital and traditional media to celebrate my love for animals and nature. My current artistic passions include pet portraits and creative cakes, and I am exploring a growing interest in visual storytelling through photography. I am a long-distance trail runner and ambassador of movement for physical and mental health.
