I've been lucky enough to work as an artist since earning my Fine Art degree from the University of Toronto in 1998. I worked as a Graphic Designer and Web Developer for numerous Fortune 500 hundred companies before branching out to launch my own online stationery boutique, which offered a unique collection of eco-friendly wedding invitations to customers across North America.
I transitioned into editorial and freelance illustration with focus on lettering. My work has been published in Wedding Bells Magazine, Modern Luxury Media (DC Magazine), and Uppercase Magazine, along with numerous blogs and social channels.
At the beginning of 2019, I was accepted as one of a handful of creators to develop effects for the Instagram Camera. Since then, my work has received billions of impressions since launching the filters. My "Dollface" effect was featured as "the new essential filter for all your selfies" in Cosmopolitan (Spain) Magazine.
I've also created a number of Facebook Frames which have been widely embraced by users across the world, with billion of uses at the time of writing this. I value all of the new friends I've made during this journey, and I enjoy hearing stories from people from everywhere!
I am proud to call Canada home, where I'm raising my two amazing kids and two dogs. My work is inspired by a lifetime of travel, a passion for nature and music, and the belief that positivity is contagious.
