About Me

Hi there! I’m an Australian scientific illustrator best known on Instagram for my animal drawing tutorials and anatomical studies. I come from a traditional painting background but I now primarily work with digital media (Photoshop CC, Cintiq 13HD tablet). My favourite subjects are big cats, deer and Ice Age mammals, but I really love to draw any kind of creature.

I’ve been drawing animals for as long as I can remember and I started studying their anatomy in my teens. My love for science led me to graduate from university with a Natural History Illustration degree and pursue a freelance career. Most of my commissions come from private clients but I also supplied illustrations for the drawing instruction book “The Sketch Encyclopedia” (3dtotal Publishing, 2018).

After working as a studio art teacher in Sydney for two years I realised that anyone can learn to draw with the right guidance. I get a lot of joy out of sharing my passion with other people and seeing them grow as artists, and I now want to make this the focus of my career. Through Patreon you can be an integral part of this process.

Why Patreon?

Patreon is a monthly subscription service that allows you to pledge any amount in exchange for exclusive rewards from me. You can pause donations or cancel completely at any time.

Through Patreon I can spend less time on private commissions and focus more on personal projects, e.g. animal anatomy posters, paleoart, drawing tutorials, and even a "how to draw animals" book series that I've been planning. Of course Patrons will receive behind-the-scenes access to all of these things.

Rewards

Patreon allows me to make closer one-on-one connections with individuals than I could on Instagram or Facebook. I want to get to know you individually, take extra time to answer your questions and provide the content you really want to see. Your feedback and interests will directly influence which animals I draw and what kind of tutorials I create. Tell me what your favourite animal is and I’ll help you learn to draw it better.

Patrons will be able to view exclusive time-lapse drawing videos, work-in-progress and early access to upcoming posts on social media. I can also provide private feedback on your work and answer any questions about scientific illustration, freelance work, or growing your following on social media. I’ll also share reference photos from my frequent trips to zoos and museums so you can draw along with me. You can also join my private Discord community of like-minded animal artists.*

I invite you to become a part of my creative process and see everything that goes on behind the scenes. Thank you so much for your support!
