Growing up in the Blue Mountains in NSW, I was born into a creative family. In 1999, I moved to New Zealand, when my father was employed by Weta Workshop to work on the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
It was at Weta that I commenced work after school and through school holidays in the weapons and armour department, an experience that taught me valuable skills and steeped me in industry work ethic. It was my time at Weta that fueled my desire to create worlds, and that ultimately led to my career path as a costume designer. After returning from New Zealand, I engaged with the local cosplay community in Sydney. I moved, and trained under a corset maker in Perth, Australia. I returned to Sydney and trained in armour making at Studio Kite, alongside my dad again. Then I was accepted into NIDA, and finally studied costume formally, attaining my degree in 2013.
It is my hope that I can develop my skills as an artist and illustrator more thoroughly and change my career path from costume designer to concept artist.
