(ILLUSTRATIONS)

I work with brands, agencies, and individuals, from start-ups to global companies, to create illustrations that are often inspired by fashion, art, and nature. From loose sketches to intricately detailed drawings, they are hand-drawn using fine-point pens or H2B pencils. Below are select pieces of work for clients such as Rizzoli, Veuve Clicquot, Bloomscape, Rika Magazine, True & Co., H2O+, Exile, and Gabriela Hearst.
