I'm a highly creative and very motivated illustrator/designer. I've been in the advertising world for over 20 years, and I know what it is to work to tight deadlines. I work on anything from logo design, storyboards, finished illustration, to cartoons and caricatures. I can use any medium, am fluent in Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator CS4,and thanks to the internet, can work for anyone anywhere in the world!
Area Covered: New Zealand, South Africa, UK
Work Experience Summary: I started my career at Matthewman, Banks & Tholet Advertising in Harare, Zimbabwe, moved to London and worked for 2 years in the inhouse design studio at Pickwick International plc. I moved to South Africa and spent 2 years at Lintas in Johannesburg, 2 years as studio manager at Pinball Studios which specialised in freelancing for all the major agencies, and then spent 16 years at Young & Rubicam SA Johannesburg. I'm now freelancing in Auckland New Zealand.
Education Summary: I left school after my GCSE O level exams, passing them all. I was lucky enough to get my training in an advertising agency, and was hired fully by them when I helped to win a new fashion house account, largely because of my fashion illustrations. I was with them for 7 years, until I was approached by another agency to a more senior position.
I have also completed a 2 year course on makeup artistry and prosthetics, and now have an International Cidesco Diploma in those subjects.
