How did you get into illustration? A true digital native, I've been creating graphic artworks since 14, most of which consisted of typography. At 18 I decided to get more hands on with my work and taught myself hand lettering and calligraphy.

What tools (digital or not!) do you use to create your work? I use a combination of hand drawn lettering techniques, digital vector illustration and paint to create my 3D artworks.

Who or what inspires you the most? The opportunity to share my story with the words I paint.
