I love to create with an emphasis on colour harmony, aesthetics, integration & illusion.
With my background in traditional art, illustration, and matte painting, my skills have been a great fit in my roles as Digital Matte Painter, Concept Artist, Environment Designer, Illustrator, Art Director, Creative Director and would potentially be a great fit for Production Design. Please contact me for any inquiries or additional information.
SOME BACKGROUND INFO (no pun intended :D)
I work with many different mediums, including traditional and digital. I have a strong background in traditional art including painting and drawing that I learned taking classes from 5 years old (thanks mom!) right into my late 20’s, and I continued to learn those techniques during my studies in the 3 year Illustration and Design Program in CEGEP. This is also where I discovered digital art. I was taught how to use each of these different mediums to my advantage in order to achieve the best aesthetic in the least amount of time. I worked as a freelance illustrator during my studies, and I continue to do so currently. In my 3rd year of studies, I had a class called Environment Design, and this is when it all clicked! I was inspired to continue learning in University in a Bachelor’s Program at Centre NAD (UQAC) to become a Visual Effects Artist specializing in Matte Painting & Compositing. My love of nature, painting and movie magic naturally led me to my passion for matte painting & environment design and I have been lucky to work full time in the VFX industry on movies such as Ford v Ferrari, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Justice League, The Mummy, Fantastic Beasts, Sully, Suicide Squad, Race , etc. My appetite for creativity and my drive fuels me to constantly search for new challenges and creative projects.
Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work in various teams and on many different projects. With my background in freelance illustration and experience in the corporate VFX world, I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge both with team building & people skills, as well as with software and artistic skills. I have experience with hefty VFX pipelines, a deep knowledge of Photoshop and Nuke, and experience using Maya and a few other supportive software for Matte Painting. I thrive to work in a passionate and dedicated team to crate beautiful pixels!
