I am a Sydney based artist, Illustrator, graphic designer, toy maker and the creator of Pizza Dude - everyone’s favourite pizza themed superhero.

I am a Sydney based artist, Illustrator, graphic designer, toy maker and the creator of Pizza Dude - everyone’s favourite pizza themed superhero.

I write, draw and produce: comic books, zines, art prints, pins and handmade toys.

My work has been my exhibited in Sydney, Melbourne, London and I am currently a regular feature artist in the USA at the prestigious Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles.

My super powered, fun, far out fiction is filled with colourful references to popular culture. These are taken from my many hobbies and interests which usually include a healthy combination of retro comic books, 1980’s cinema, rock and roll music, vintage action figures, 1950’s movie posters my Maltese heritage and Saturday morning cartoons.

Recently I created a series of handmade wooden toys called “Wood Heads”. These one of a kind Plastic Free Inaction Figures are representations of pop culture icons that are handmade (out of sustainably sourced birch timber) and hand painted by me.

I have facilitated many zine making, illustration and character creation workshops for school aged children across Sydney, inspiring and nurturing the next generation of artists and creators.

I was a dual finalist in the 2014 Desktop Create Awards in the Illustration category for my work on Pack of Heroes: A Superhero Card Game and The Red River Shore: Wild, Wild Wind Album Cover. I was also a finalist in the 2014 Sydney Design Awards in the Illustration and Typography category again for my work on Pack of Heroes: A Superhero Card Game.

In 2015 I received a Highly Commended Award in the Institutional - Series Category from Illustrators Australia for my illustration work on the genre bookmarks for Ashfield Library through Ashfield/Inner West Council.
