Salutations!

Hanging out with my super cool friend, Mary Jose,
in London (Definitely not a wax model in
the Ripley's Museum @ Piccadilly)
I am a freelance cartoonist and illustrator currently living in Sligo, Ireland. Inspired by cartoons of the 1990's (I blame too many late nights in front of the TV), humour, irony, avant-garde and progressive music and all things zaney.
Although I primarily focus on caricatures and portraiture, I like to dabble with other forms of media and techniques as well as some small amounts of graphic design and posters.

I studied art in Cavan Institute in the late 00's and then attended Ballyfermot College of Further Education, Dublin, where I studied illustration for two years and gained a Higher National Diploma. In the next few years I hope to continue my education to a higher level. I will then more than likely become a crazy cat woman.

With a traditional foundation, I then work on:
- Adobe Photoshop
- Adobe Illustrator
- openCanvas


Feel free to contact me with any of your feedback. Work offers are always good too!
