Illustration

I have experience in freelance illustration and as a graphic designer. Before I became a full-time artist I worked professionally as a graphic artist and designer.

My portfolio contains recent food art paintings for commercial packaging, tile work art, magazine and in addition book covers. My work translates well on commercial packaging.

If you are looking for food art illustration with a contemporary realism feel that’s what I do best.
Below are some samples of my illustration work.

Beckon Ice Cream

In 2018 I was hired to illustrate ice cream cones for the labels of Beckon Ice Cream. Formally known as Minus the Moo.  I worked as an illustrator with a design team from start to finish on the illustrations. I normally work on my own. Although this was completely outside of my comfort zone it was without a doubt worth the time and full of challenges. I’m ready for additional challenges. After that, the images were used on their labels!
Beckon ice cream is a lactose-free, milk-based product. All Beckon ice cream flavors are delicious! You wouldn’t know it’s lactose-free.
