About me

I am an illustrator/graphic designer from the tropical island of Jamaica who enjoys fusing organic and geometric elements to tell visual stories.
After completing my BFA in Visual Communications, I worked at a boutique advertising agency for two years before coming to Japan. I currently create from my home studio while my music blazes at a somewhat respectable volume.

Please feel free to send me a message for any commissions, collaborations, questions or just to say hi.
