Toy Designer and Finance Student from Vancouver, Canada
Although Art and Finance are completely different fields, you’ve got to be creative and extremely diligent to do well in both!
I began creating custom artwork work for customers at the age of 16. I started with markers in sketchbooks, then moved to painting and printing on textiles and canvas, and now I almost exclusively work with vinyl figurines. I have undertaken everything from motion and print design to fine art, however, I have found my passion in customizing high-end designer toys for collectors.
I've happily created and delivered over 50 finely detailed hand-painted pieces for collectors around the world. I even had the pleasure of designing a production vinyl figure for NY fashion company Nooka, and displayed my work at the Dreamworks Fine Art Gallery. Aside from toy design I enjoy developing brand identity; creating promotional material for a variety of clients including musicians, small businesses, and student groups such as UBC Thunderbird Robotics. Among the non-art related hobbies, I love gaming(SC2 & DoTA2), reading, swimming, rollerblading, and playing soccer & basketball.Featured on: Vinyl Pulse, Tenacious Toys, Battle of the Mascots, Vinyl Attack, Behance, deviantART
