I am a Professional Freelance Illustrator from Melbourne, Australia, and have been studying various forms of Digital Art since 2004. After graduating High School, I have worked on Illustrative and Post-Rendering work for a few Toy companies (National and International) and provided Concept Art for Professional businesses and Independent alike. At the moment, I think I've finally found my passion in Portraiture and the fine detail within Photo Realism!
