I’m an artist and concept illustrator with a focus on realistic yet imaginative hand-rendered architectural and botanical drawing. My goal is to help provide you with a clean, articulate yet humanizing foundation for your project no matter how humble or grandiose. Whether it’s for a competition proposal, a marketing campaign, planning application or bringing a blueprint/schematics drawing to life I will help you develop a look and feel that best communicates your ideas that will get your project completed. My clients have included the National Aquarium, PwC, Microsoft and Wallpaper Magazine, among others.

In 2006 I was inspired by the practice of living breathing architecture and set out to learn as much as I could about green building and biophilic design. Soon after that I worked on several straw bale building and alternative construction projects which became the roots and focus of the work I do today. I am passionately indebted to architectural projects that work in symbiosis with all living beings.
