I would love to make illustrations that make a difference in the world. I love drawing animal characters that you can relate to.

I've always been drawn to drawing, with a special fascination for fantasy worlds like those in 'Lord of the Rings' and 'The Hobbit'. A pivotal moment was receiving 'The Hobbit' art & design book for Christmas. The behind-the-scenes documentaries revealed the magic of concept art and initially sparked my interest in set design. Although my current style diverges towards children's book illustrations and cute, animal drawings, this exposure was crucial in shaping my artistic journey.
