I am creatively diverse enough
to do whatever I am required to do- from Illustration to Graphic
Design to Body Painting to Package Design to whatever the
job requires, my fave is Logo Design. My first love is doing
illustration and painting. Word goes around for me to do TV
Storyboards. I was an Art Director in Dubai & Philippines
before becoming a Graphic Designer in Canada.
