About Mike

I am a Illustrator from Mebourne, Australia. I graduated from the University of South Australia (1995 – 1998) with a Bachelor of Design (Illustration Design) degree in 1999.

I like to keep Illustration fresh and functional in my own graphic style. Please feel free to contact me with your illustration brief.

When I am not Illustrating, I am painting in my home studio for my represented galleries or exhibitions in Melbourne. My paintings are in private collections in Australia (Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney) and overseas in Singapore, Hong Kong, Europe and the USA.
