ABOUT

My work is characterised by decorative letterforms, bold brushstrokes and fine-tuned curves. I’m always working towards creating authentic, expressive and thoughtful designs that communicate as well as inspire. My work ranges between motivational mantras, to tongue-in-cheek wordplay and nostalgic musings—influenced by travel, nature and the small pleasures of everyday life. 

For me, lettering is the perfect intersection between design and illustration, digital and analogue. I’ve always been a big believer in all things handcrafted and still love endlessly finessing designs with pencil on paper, layer upon layer, seeking perfect curves.  

I offer services across branding, custom artworks, font design, live event lettering and more—working mostly within the fashion, food, experience and retail industries. I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with clients such as Mecca Maxima, T2 Tea, Oscar Wylee and Country Road to create expressive and memorable lettering solutions.

Alongside client work, I teach a range of Lettering workshops, exhibit in group shows, experiment with personal work and give the occasional talk on freelancing and creativity. Aside from creating, I’m passionate about experiencing new places, spending time in nature and anything wrapped in pastry.
